I painted my steering column last night, (probably not the best time) Its done in satin black, just been out to have a look at my handywork and it has that lovely Translucent Grey sheen all over it, other than strip it back to metal again, is there anything that can be done??

Try a quick rubover with one of those yellow dusters with nothing on it . I've found that sometimes you can make the bloom disappear by the warmth created by rubbing ( and yes it still stays satin).

I had a bit of bloom a few years back with celly.
Worked out that it was the panel nearest the garage door and occured when door was swung open on deparure After that, crept out gingerly, no big rush of air, in or out. Never happened again.
Had oil radiators keeping the nip off etc.

I think I sprayed it around the time when the temp was dropping, becoming dark and had been raining, so there was plenty of moisture in the air, :( All is not lost though, the satin black dosent work with the brown Bakelite on the column, so I might be painting the column Brown
