On Rear end paint we did not use enough hardner and activater it remained soft for a month.
I was ready to blast it off but blast shop sugested putting it in thier ovens overnight. So we put it in a 160%oven for three nights and it now seems fine. Keeping fingures crossed The shade did not seem to change.
