From what I see it's a smooth even pass on the edge of perfection... It probably is going to need to be flat sanded gently with 1000 grit wet after abour 14 hours at 70 degrees then let it sit another day and resand again with 2000 then buff/polish as usual..

It looks like the kinda run that shows up when we don't want to waste that little bit left in the gun so we put it on there against all instincts.
Other than that you had it

I agree with Milo, it is the ragged edge of perfection, just a little too much. The pass was too slow, or a little too much material. At any rate, follow Milo's advice and you can salvage it.

wow you are putting it on way to heavy. light coats man unless you like all that excess sanding. after you sand a whole car u will see, sanding isnt as easy as they say. u are wasteing 2 days just so u can sand out that run. time is money maybe this is just your ride so time doesnt mean that much. but way to much paint and to slow of a pass.

next time run it off the panel . if you are not carefull it will turn into a huge repair. those drops will take a lot of time to cure , otherwise they will tear out. you can put 2 in tape over them and then sand through the tape to the run. this way all you cut is the run and tape. when you no longer cut through to the sag it is flat enough to block without the tape.

When I get a run like that I always have some scotch tape on hand. Rip off a piece and dab it using a new piece on each dab. Let it flash for twenty minutes then recoat. Works every time. No sanding runs, ever.

I only wish ants were a problem in my shop. I had just finished painting and went to set my gun down, turned around and about 17 flies bum rushed the paint job.
