    I just rubbed down a removed a few we bubbles off the front wheel arch of my w124 ,treated for rust rubbed down primed rubbed down and can spray painted it and was well pleased BUT then when I applied the first coat of laquer ten minutes later a white line appeared I think the colour coat may not have been dry enough ,,Don't want to start again would this buff out. Does not have to look like new it's 18 yrs old....suggestion please ....

    At the current air temps paint will take more than 24 hours for the thinners to evaporate, its near impossible to do any paint work under 20c, you stand a good chance when doing it at low temps of trapping the thinners in, if the paints are not dry then the base coats will reactivate and mix with the current coat. If only doing small areas, the a heat lamp is the thing to use, and warm the panel up,,,the other snag is paint shrinks as it dries,,,and it can pull back from the edges of the old paint, and as above paint cannot flash off at under 20c.

    Pain in back side no drying at all .. Might just let dry off and let it go till warmer weather ..but at least rust is treated. Feel a bit sad as when I painted it 3 coats I was we'll pleased got it blended in great went to bed happy.then that dam laquer ruined it ...:(
