Clear Runs On Edges

I just got done spraying a rear door on a Lexus, and everything looked great so I clean out my gun and my paint bench, then I went back to look at the door and the dreaded clear run right by the edge of the door was there(about 3" into the panel to the edge)

I would usually try and bury it with clear and run it off the panel, but in this case I didn't think it would work out so well do to it's location and the shape of the door, plus I already cleaned out my gun...

So I used a piece of tape to blot off some of the excess, but I could already tell this was a probable repaint...

So I grabbed a rattle can of DuPont clear blender, and gave it a few careful squirts and and melted the run (sort of) off the panel, but it did flatten out the run to the point were I feel a little more confident I can wet sand and buff it out.

I'm hoping that it will be a little easier to sand with that blender on it.

Update tomorrow.

Anyone else try this?
