    Wish I could help you out, but I've never sprayed it. Is it a pretty inexpensive clear and Hardener?

    Last few jobs I've done-I've used the Matrix MS-42. Flows great and leaves a very nice finish

    A lot of it has to do with the weather, I know on the HOK clear, instead of being able to wetsand and buff the next day, we now have to wait 2 days.
    Even down here in FL, it gets cold. Got down to the low 30's last week. Down here 30 easily feels like it would 20 up north.

    If it's in the 50's or so in CA, you should be able to buff the next day.

    ^^ Agreed 100% Temp and humidity have a lot to do with it. I find it to be a little soft,but am doing a color sand and buff out within 24 hrs. Try 1500 wiped dry first. If it balls up it's still too green.
