Harbor freight has small 3" buffing wheels that attach to air grinders, drills etc that may be able to get in there better than a regular buffer. then, theres always hand polishing

How to get rid of runs

Runs are difficult in any situation, but as already suggested a smaller buffing wheel like one on a dremel tool, might help, however from the photo it looks like you have more then a few drips, hard to say what to do in this case. Maybe take it all off. On panels the best way - is to place masking tape on each side of drip and at the bottom and top. Then take a new razor blade and gently slide the blade down the drip using the tape as a guide you should be able to slice the nib of the drip off. Timing is important, to soon and you will dray the paint. Make sure the drip is dry before buffing it out. Good luck!

well If I was teaching you at my shop I'd have you sand the runs with 320 and paint them again until you get it right if you get runs the second time ,THEN you buff the runs (flow indicators)....painting wheels can be tough

easiest way to paint wheels is on a lazy susan. rotate the wheel and hold the gun steady

I've been doing it backwards I stand on a creeper and have someone push me around the wheel,I like your way better...One thing I do do differently though is I have the tire already mounted but off the beads,when I'm done painting I just inflate the tire this way there are no scratches or chips from mounting the tires
