Tried to reply this morning but lost the internet. Do it soon if you haven't already. Try it on a small spot first and see if it lifts the base coat before you do very much.

You know the rattle can paint where it says put all the coats on within an hour or wait 7 days. A clear coat will sometimes do that to a base coat. It can make the paint wrinkle up like you put paint stripper on it.

I've worked with a lot of automotive base/clear systems, and 30 minutes between base and clear is a good rule of thumb.

My usual routine is, I shoot the base, and by the time I clean up the base coat gun, mix the clear, and check out my clear coat gun, enough time has elapsed to go ahead and shoot the clear.

The actual bottom line is, read what it says on the paint can.
