the clear gets milky when its wet but as it dries it should clear up.... why not use a matte clear it would match stock black interior better...

I used krylon fusion on my door panels.. no problems.. i'm betting its your clear coat. Try doing like 2-3 really thin coats

Sometimes humidity will do that. Just clear I and then polish it

oh yes humidity sucks for painting ESPECIALLY black ... the black will look milky or cloudy when you spray on your clear. its called blushing. sometimes you can see it before you clear but in most cases, as the clear is drying the blushing will fade out. if you see it before you clear sand lightly with 1000 and try some light dust coats... usually it will all come out and you will never know it happend in some cases if the clear dries to fast it will trap the blushing underneath with no where to go... if this happens let it dry, sand it smooth and try again!

make sure, espeically on hot days with lots of humidity, make sure you give black time to flash (dry) if you start applying more coats before its dry not only can you run it but it can cause problems down the road! even if you finish it up and it all looks great maybe a few days or weeks or month down the road the clear will start to dye back and or peel or bubble. any number of things really so becareful and be patient! wait atleast 15 minutes even on a hot day just to be sure! humidity can also cause things to dry improperly or even almost not at all itll kinda be sticky... so good luck! and post pics when your done!!!


let me know if i can help anymore...

I don't think stock panels even use clear they aren't glossy
