I believe the cause of most paint bubbles is that people use MEK or some other type of solvent to clean up excess Proseal. It is best to let the Proseal dry and sand off any excess.

FYI, there is a special tank dimple die, I think I got it from Cleveland Tools, that provides a bit larger dimple allowing for proseal! Helps keep the rivet heads flush with the skins.

I see this comment passing by every now and then.
How accurate is this? If it is, I have a problem. I have used *lots* of MEK to try to keep things clean.

If the MEK residue is the problem, can’t this be cleaned?
