What might explain the light blue primer that's showing underneath the dark blue Awlgrip on my boat? Does some of the topcoat leach into the primer during the original bond? I assume you can always sand off & try again if (or I should say when) you initially get the color match wrong?
Standard MO when shooting colors is to prime with white 545 and put a little of the topcoat base in it. This tints the primer towards the topcoat color, ie primer for red topcoat would be pink, yours is light blue. Makes color coats cover in less coats. Everyone does it.
