Thought is start a thread incase someone didn't see it in my build.
Basically want to remove blush from my clear coat , I know it's causes by high humidity and moisture is trapped under the paint .

I've decided to rub it back and give it a top coat of colour but i think the blush will come back .
The 1st coat of clear was really good , 2nd coat was where it all went wrong. When I clear it again I'll give a good hour for the clear to dry , that should help the moisture.

Anyway is there a spray or something to get rid of it ?

Cheers

Interestingly this idea is worth a crack. I have this issue at present. But the humidity here is RAIN. And the temperature doesn't reach 10 celcius. So am pissing in the wind.

I just ended up rubbing all the clear back and giving it another coat of red. I think I may have had moisture in my line . I.had a water trap but not a moisture trap . I thought they were the same thing but I've been told differently.
