Paint problems

I have noticed my newly painted black bonnet done in 2-pac clear over base has slight grey ghost marks in it does anyone know what this could be .Also the yellow glow parts of the car has a very slight green tinge to it where the engine bay is perfect .The reason the engine bay is so nice is that once it was finished we had the newly painted engine bay sanded back a little and re coated so now has a extra coat but looks like yellow glow yellow where the rest has the greenish tinge .We think the marks on the bonnet and the green tinge is from the grey under coat that has not had enough coats of yellow paint done.
Please any help would be great as I am making up my mind what do with the car tomorrow before I see the painter again .
I hope it dosn't have to be done again but if it has to it will .

Step 1 when painting your car yellow:

Choose another colour!!!
(/joke)

I reckon what you say about the undercoat is probably right...

Re: Paint problems

It's either paint too thin or a dry spot in the clear. I had the same with the clearcoat. As it's not easy to see how much your spraying when its clear. I was lucky due to me painting it and just put another very wet coat on. Problem solved

Re: Paint problems

the grey and green tinge... is it like a smoke haze effect in the clear, like it is sort of milky..

It has to do with the clear 'flushing'... Why it happens i'll have to check but i've seen it a few times

Thanks brenden do you think it will have to be rubbed back and done again .
Also with the green tinge would that be because the paint is to thin and hasn't coverd the grey under coat proberly.
any help would be great as I am thinking about it been done again.

Test a very small area, preferable in an area where noone would see. Possibly would be able to be rubbed back? Best option would be to show either a panelshop or paintshop. They'll know how to fix it easily.

Re: Paint problems

Ah the joys of paying people to do things. I need two L brackets welded with a roughly a 10mm hole drilled in each. I't looking like I have to leave my car from Monday afternoon till Wednesday just for that. It's less than a 5 min job which I would have done myself if I hadn't flash burned myself. That delays my roadworthy check. What can you do?

You just have to put up with it as your not the only person waiting for them.
