Odd fish eye question...Need a bit of help

Im painting my plastics for my bike as Im typing this...I am almost done with the 2nd stage (primer sealer) of 4 but ran into an odd problem...I have one fish eye. I am wondering if there is anything I can do with it other than sand down and repaint. I have no problem doing this but I was just wondering if there is a trick that would save me the time of having to repaint the item...

Thanks in advance

clean again
clean again with chemical

you can wait till the sealer is sandable but not cured and sand it out and spray a light coat of epoxy over that area and cross your fingers. A light coat of epoxy will help in enveloping the area without it reacting. If you do it within the curing window you can do the repair and paint but you have the risk of the basecoat doing the same thing. If you let it cure, then sand the fish eyes out, scuff all the epoxy, and then spray a light coat of epoxy over that area it will not react with your basecoat guaranteed.
