last paint question...hopefully

Ok fellas so hopefully this will be my last question about this paint job.Ok as you know of youve read my other posts my I did a budget paint job with a ss dark charcoal gray from summit,,no tiger stripes no orange peel, got one or two runs only because like a dummy I added a filter in the gun after my first coat.Anyways I had one spot that I had tryd to beat a dent out of&before the paint it looked fine but after the paint you can really see it,where I didn't do my best sanding the filler down.So my question is Im gonna order some more paint im a month or so&sand the panel down&respray.Now when I do that Im guessing I should shoot a coat or 2 over the entire truck?Or not?Hoefully...brian,adantessr,swvalcon,&daniel will chime i Also to the mods If I should of just added this to my previous post...I apologize if its a problem let me know&I will try to add it there.Thanks guys.

if your jobber is mixing tints himself I'd hope he mixes it exactly the same and I'd replicate everything I did the last time, including temps. Then I'd butt match it to everything else. If it doesn't look good you can always paint the whole car. For the fix, if it's just scratches then I'd block with 240-280 and move my way up to 400-600 in hopes of not re-priming. If you have to do bodywork and prime obviously there's more work. Do like electricity and take the path of least resistance. If it doesn't work oh well. Much better than prepping the whole car for nothing.

Really I asked the same question?I must of typed it in invisible text&you were able to decode it with your decoder ring the other post was asking how to blend ss metallic in this post I asked if I should re shoot the whole truck.And since I said I was gonna correct the problem with the panel &shoot it with the information Ive already recived I do not see how answers I recived about fixing a panel can give ne a answer about painting the whole truck.
