    center console bubbled, what now?

    i started painting my Center Console a while back and it bubbled, which means i sanded too much.

    i have sanded it back down so its smooth, but what can i do now to stop it from bubbling again?

    make sure you spray on with a cleaner that takes the oils and other dirt that will be invisible to the eye. and rub off. then respray with a primer then spray then lacquer

    It has a protective coating

    Rub it down more and use white spirit to clean it

    as long as you have ALL of the protective/original coating off. And I mean all. The oiley - textured surface that was orginally on surface will cause paint to bubble (I know as I had the same problem)

    A really really good sanding - then some plastic primer (at least 2 coats) will sort it. Just take ur time to check it all by eye as it will be worth it for the finish.
