Sounds like it's fighting you the whole way...stay vigilant! Some projects just seem never ending.  Are you pleased with result?

What's the finish again?  Some catalyzed finishes don't like to be cut and buffed.

Peter,

I used Target Coatings EM6000 waterbased production lacquer  https://www.targetcoatings.com/product/emtech-em6000-wb-production-lacquer/   with 2% crosslinker added  https://www.targetcoatings.com/product/emtech-cl100-wb-crosslinker/

I'm strongly considering giving up on spraying until I have a better spraying environment. In the meantime, if somebody wants a spray finish, I'll have to outsource it to someone with proper facilities.

Mike

A spray booth is something I'd love to have, but I doubt my neighbors would feel the same. I've heard of guys setting up temp booths in U-Hauls.

I'd settle for a large enough workshop where I could easily move stuff out of the way to erect a temporary booth inside where I have some control over the environment rather than in my driveway. Until I can figure out where to come up with a spare $25k that's not going to happen anytime soon  :dunno:
