im pretty much screwed
i sprayed my truck friday in the morning
by 5:00 it was dry enough to touch
i took it out of the booth and brought it home because the guy said i had to move it out.
now i got a bunch of fogged up spots from the rain
the rain did not mess up the smoothness of the clear ,
but i have a bunch of fogged up spots all over the side panels.
i know that cold weather can ruin a paint job but it wasn't the coldness that messed it up it was the cold rain drops that stayed there and maybe
got colder than the weather
i covered the truck with blankets and plastic, but on the bottom where the plastic didn't cover is where the paint is messed up,
what can i do
i know i got to repaint it
but can i possibly blend it
some advice would really be appreciated

You need to keep that plastic away from that fresh paint or you will be repainting it.
Plastic and any dew or moisture can map a paint and you will not buff out,

If the blushing did not leave marks it will come out with sun
or when you buff.

If you wetsand and buff after wetsanding pull in sun for a couple of hours, than pull inside and let cool to room temp before buffing.
