I sanded defect areas, reapplied basecoat and then sprayed clearcoat on everything. All came out well and within the 24 hour recoat time frame for recoating. I discovered my lapmark error when respraying the the base on the top of the car and had to shoot it twice. As I sprayed from the drip rail and moved towards the center, my hand would arc up as my arm was extended. This caused the fan to be uneven with the surface being sprayed. After resanding again, I paid special attention to bend my wrist and keep the gun and fan even with the top for the second coat. The problem is gone and the clearcoat is on.
