dbc 2000 colorsand

I just sprayed a tank with dbc 2000 and I noticed this imperfection. I am not sure if I missed this sanding or something got dragged through it. I decided before I clear it to colorsand it and then put one more coat of base on it. Should I use about 800 grit and completely remove this? I am a little nervous about going all the way down to the primer and making the problem worse. I guess the question I am asking is wht is the correct way to colorsand before reapplying base then clear thanx......Steve

Hit it with 800, dust more color over that area and hit it with clear

Get the base perfect before you clear or it's there forever!

color sand..

umm..as a professional bodyman and refinisher.. the way i would do it is.. sand the entire surface with 800-1000 grit wet or dry dont matter.. then wipe it clean and tack it.. spray 1 coat of blender on the surface then blend the color over the area of the imperfection. when it disappears spray with 1 control coat to orientate the metalic. then dont tack it.. spray with 2 coats of clear and viola. a perfect panel.
