Krylon Fusion Problem

I know this is child's play for you guys, but I just painted two small plastic covers for my motorcycle with Krylon Fusion aerosol. I had the finish just the way I wanted it, and then removed the masking tape from the silver areas. There was some residue from the masking tape , and being the idiot I can be some times, I sprayed mineral spirits on both covers to remove the residue. Naturally, this ruined my new spray job.

Can I scuff this down and re-spray it, or how would I go about correcting what I wrecked? They don't have to be perfect, just reasonably smooth and gloss black. The picture is of the worst of the two.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

Those are small so I would scuff and re-shoot..Just a dust coat should do it..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
