humidity.

Has anyone else ever painted when it was too humid and had the clouding occur? If so how'd you fix it?

I like and idiot had my one day off today and rushed a dash paint job in and bam, clouds and ****ty looking everywhere. I'm sure it wasn't uneven painting or anything like that. Do I have to sand this off or can I just go over it when its better out? It rained yest and today was 80%+ humid.

^It was NASTY humid! The last time I tried painting when it was real humid, it just took forever to dry, stayed real "gummy" for a couple of hours, just wait and see if it dries better

I painted my bumpers the other day while it was raining outside. lol Luckily, the humidity in the shop never got over 60%.

i lived in houston b4 moving here and it was humid all the time. all u can do is sand and start over instead of wasting the time doin touch ups and try doing it in a basement or if u dont have one inside some how.

i'm doing my entire dash, and it's not a problem with it not drying. It dries as fast as it should but it ends up with surfacant bleeding because of the high humidity.
