Thanks, I wish that was true, I guess the real test and challenge is when I strip the hood and do the same procedure as the header panel. Right now the hood has what I think is called "crows feet", and my understanding if it's not the clear causing the crows feet then it's the actual base paint. If the base paint is causing this, the only option is to strip down to metal and start from fresh.
Right now the temperature here is starting to get cooler, and the only thing I can do is the prep work from this coming spring warmer weather.
I will post some pictures of my progress

I had 'crows feet' happen on this ATR front bumper when I cleared it. I switched to a different clear...may have been laquer or vice versa...whatev er the other one is. When I switched to the other...all went well. Think I still have both the cans in the garage. Will check today. The guy that stole my GN snapped the bumper in half. I'm just fixing it now....so I'll have a look today.

So what you're saying that scumbag try to steal your GN and damaged the bumper?
As far as the crows feet, I'm going to try to use 3M Trizact Hookit Foam Disc 6" 2500 and 3000 Grit, and see if the clear is causing this issue or the base paint. All I know I have a winter projects in a cold garage. I might have to break out the portable propane heater; and that thing throws out too much heat, as I'm going to have to open a little the garage door.

Definitely post some pictures after you paint the bumpers


I also painted both bumpers this afternoon since the weather was warm to paint.
I going to use the black base paint and the 2k clear gloss coat, but I already started with Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover black Paint+Primer. I already have given 3 coats, and I might give it another coat to fill in some pin spots.

There's a pic of the front bumper on the board here somewhere the first time I did it before the car was stolen. I'll get pics up this week if the weather will cooperate.

Duplicolor is what I went with the first time...so I'm sticking with it. No reason it shouldn't look the same. You can't tell where it was broke in half.

Like I said, the bumper really looks good, maybe next time if I do the bumper again, i'll switch to Duplicolor with the clear.
If you get a chance, post some pictures
