Not the first time I've had this happen but first time in a long time and had forgotten how soul crushing it can be after you've done multiple coats only to have it go horribly wrong at the end. No saving it so at least got some frustration out by stomping on it repeatedly. I've never been successful at stripping paint from a body so gave up on that effort long ago. It always melted, became brittle or ruined the surface or all the above.
That is a huge bummer. I was almost done with a Shelby Cobra Coupe when I managed to ruin the paint by leaving it under a lamp to dry and accidentally baking the masking tape adhesive into the paint. It was heartbreaking because I had spent a lot of time on it. A couple days in a simple green bath did the trick on Tamiya Acrylic, but I haven't started to repaint yet.
