I would sand the painted areas well with 400, then shoot another coat of K36 over the areas you painted. Wet sand that with 400 to 600 then shoot the proper color.

PS I would have a bone to pick with your PPG jobber.

Are you shooting a B/C or single stage?? If it's a B/C, then you only need to lightly sand it with 1200 grit wet, clean, tack and go on. If it's S/S, allow it to sit overnight, rough it with a scotch brite pad, clean, tack and re-coat.
