The humidity was a little high, around 70% vs the ideal 50% so I had to flash everything with a hair dryer to keep it from hazing.
Thats what I was looking for, thanks for the info. So the HF gun performed ok?

Lesson learned for me, clear coat in a spray can would orange peel and wouldn't come out right...

It's got about 20 hours of my time in it.
Badass man, the job looks great.

I like this color much more than the OEM black/orange scheme, in 2007.
