You didn't spray any silicone or wax products anywhere near by those wheels, did you? I ruined a paint job one, sprayed some WD-40 in the driveway with the garage door open, but a good 15 feet away.

Outgas holes. Painting cast aluminum, those holes were likely under the last coat and she you shot fresh paint on it dissolved the layer covering the holes... rinse and repeat mang.

Just my 2 pennies so a real painter should be consulted, maybe drop by the local paint shop with one and ask.

You talkin about solvent pop? I think that's a little different where you shoot the next coat too soon and you get pin holes from the paint off gassing through the top coat.

I've also seen similar marks when the item being painted is cold. Should have everything up to room temp. Also, soak the cans of paint in a bucket of hot water for 30min or so before painting. It will help the paint atomize properly.

Good to know, the basement is a little cold, I'll have to figure out how to heat things up. Thanks!

Careful use of a heat gun or a little safer a hair dryer can warm the part, at the same time the paint is in warm water you can then shoot the part while warm and it can help. I do it sometimes when I need to paint something small in the garage in winter. I warm the paint, hang the part and warm with the heat gun if bare, or hair dryer if painted and then give a quick coat of paint, then move back in the house. I have to do it to keep smell out of the house.

Just a tad bit of safety info. Not really sure what your predicament was. But I was a volunteer fireman long ago. And we had a house explosion due to 2 young teens repainting there bicycles in the basement of there home during the winter. Furnace kicked on and built up fumes ignited. Neither kid was killed but suffered bad burns and house was total loss. I don't mean to come off rude but to everyone out there be safe no matter what it is your doing. Ty.
