Rain on drying paint, will it hurt it?
Had the jeep painted
They painted it yesterday afternoon.
Got it back today, its pretty much dry, but it seems if I layed anything on it that it would leave a mark.
One of the bodyshop guys said to leave it out in the sun and let it dry, which I did.
We had a light rain about an hour ago, and I didn't notice it til the jeep was already wet.
I drove it in the garage and wiped off most of the rain, it had a ton of beaded rain drops everywhere [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Well anyways, the spots that I didn't get too well seem to have what looks like water spots, but permenant water spots.
Its been a day and I'm wondering if the weight of the rain could actually have an effect, or could it just be buffed out or?
I tried to wipe the spots off with a paper towel, and it didn't affect anything.
The hood came out like crap(he said it was because I used a different kind of primer?
It looks like the paint tryed to lift in a few places.
He said he would redo it after everything had fully settled, so I will be back to the shop next week.
What I'm wondering is if I should ask him to lay another coat on the affected areas(pretty much fenders and hood) or if I can just buff it out?
