    In the past I have painted cars and when the paint as bloomed I have polished it out but I always used Cellulose paint. Maybe you could try really fine wet'n'dry paper with soapy water 1200grit or higher.

    not a good time of year to paint my friend ...you really need a heated garage or such like ..think i would do it again in warmer conditions.. you could spray it again but the chances are it will bloom again

    Its not just the heat, at this time of year there is so much moisture in the air and cold that is what give you the blooming ..you really need it dry,warm constant, which is not to easy at this time of year.. i have a few spray jobs to do myself but i will not tackle them till warmer weather is here ... no doubt someone will have a different oppinion ...but in the years i have been painting cars thats what i have found ..hope it help you

    to be honest i would try some 1500grit rather than the 1200 or even 1800grit if u can get it,like phil says there is so much moisture in the air that this time of the year isn't the best for the job especially when you come to lacque then u will have seriouse probs.
