Shane this post is a bit old, I came across it trying to help some else out in Polane material usage. AUE100 is gloss right? Polane is semi-gloss right? The Polane I am familiar with is a 7:1 mix using V27 cat and V29 Polane reducer for best results. MEK even laquer thinner can be way to fast.
If even coats are an issue, your reducer is probly too fast. The application of Polane should be fairly passive. Also, to much Cat, produces a glossier finish, leading to uneven appearance. AUE 100 to Polane, what are you painting? I can't see the application. Then again I may have used AUE300? 30 years of spraying paint... Hard to keep up.
