    Spray painting problem?

    Hey Guys,
    I was painting yesterday in my Mum's garage. I sealed the main door with masking take to prevent drafts and to keep it warmer inside. I used several heaters on the far side of the room to keep the room between 12c and 15c. I managed to get a load of spraying done without any problems. However when I tried respraying my tailgate strip the paint kept cracking.
    I would have thought the paint would only crack if it were too warm???
    Any thoughts?

    Is there any trace of anything on it?

    May be worth spirit wiping it after flatting it again?

    try washing it over with white spirit to remove any grease and key the paint with wet and dry paper before spraying.

    You say you sealed the door. You sould be spraying in a well ventilated environment really mate. I do all my spraying in the back yard so i can paint the patio!! then put it in the shed to dry. Never had any problems
