    Thanks for the feedback. It sounds like waiting and wet sanding would be the best option, however I am strapped for time unfortunately. I just got confirmation that the new machine will be arriving...

    I will stay away from the hardener, and will reduce it at max to 10%. I'll start with 5% and go up from there. Also, I'll give the 1.4mm nozzle a try and see if I can get it to lay flat. You are...

    It has been a couple weeks since I repainted the area, and I believe that I may have over-reduced the paint in an attempt to get the paint through the 1.0mm fluid tip. I noticed that the paint in...

    Quick update:

    I went outside and wiped the spot down with wax and grease remover, and I noticed that part of sag went deep than I thought. Either that, or the paint was tearing a little - seen in...
