Meguiars makes a little "stone" block that's 1000 grit.
Works great on wet sanding runs.
It's completely flat and rigid, you can feel it when it's on
the run or when it's not.
It's about 1.5" x .5", works great.

That's the only "tool" I use on anything like that. I don't like the "files", I have had great luck with the "stone". True it on a piece of glass with sand paper on it once in a while and it's as good as new. They have them with other grits too, 1200, 1500 is as far as they go I believe.

Something similar to that, which I have been using is a very small peice of plexiglass about 2 inch by 3/4 inch that is hard and rigid as it will only sand the high spot of the run. A lot of the time you can still see the outline of the run as a small ripple, using a hard FLAT block will eliminate this.
