Thanks for the tips, I might try that.

Don't stress, you can strip the paint off with ipa and repaint. If you use the same clear again go very light and allow time between coats..
Interesting! Next time, should I use a different kind of clear coat? Any recommandation?

Thanks guys for all the good info!
