Default Clear coat ruined paintjob

Hey guys, shortened my brake lever, primed it and put 3 coats of krylon spray paint on it. Looked great. Let it cure until I got home from work lastnight, and I got some rustoleum clear coat. Put two light coats on and it gave my lever a wrinkly texture. Sanded it off and tried again today but this time that texture is all over the lever. I have no clue what to do and am about to just order new levers.

Krylon and Rustoleum do not mix. I know this from many years of graffiti writing. Basically Krylon is water based and Rustoleum is oil based, oil and water.

I did the same thing to a fuel tank once. The rattle can job came out looking good then once the clear went on it looked like someone put paint remover on it. I ended up going to S&W automotive paints and bought a single stage paint.

I have run into issues with the differing primers to, I try to stay with the same brand for the whole process. I mean they did engineer them to work together. Good luck.

Yeah, I guess I'm just going to sand it all off and restart the process.
