Paint curtains (No not the living room kind!)

Well, I just finished spraying my truck box and noticed that I got a little carried away with the gun and got myself a nice set of curtains ( runs, sags or what have you ) Now my dear missus might like new curtains, they dont do anything for my pick-up. Seriously though, where do I go from here? It took me alot of prep to get this far and well I`m sure some of you have been there so ... any ideas on what to do next?

What kind of paint did you use? Laquer - Enamel - Urethane - Base-coat/Clear Coat? Did you use a hardener? How old is the paint. hours/days?

If it's NOT a metallic paint job you may be able to block/wet sand the run out and buff it. Or if it is in the clear coat you should be able to Block/wet sand it as long as you don't break through the clear coat. If it's a metallic paint you will have to block/wet sand it and re-shoot it.

Get a paint nib and file off the runs, you can also use a razor but be carful not to dig into or gouge the paint. Don't try to sand the runs out, if you do, you will sand through the paint surrounding the runs before you get the runs out. Get the runs out wet sand it and then re shoot it.

I sanded a sag out of the clear coat on this car with 220/a block and allot a water 'til the sag was gone. then went over it with 600 then 1,000 or finer, then buffed it and used some swirl remover polish and no more sag. You do have to be careful not to break through the clear coat, but it's doable. The trick is to start out with a coarse enough sandpaper to cut through the sag almost like a file. Then sand out the scratches with finer wet/dry paper. And use plenty of water (I use a garden hose ruining slow).
