Removing dust from clearcoat


let me start: "long time reader; first time poster (almost)"

I sprayed the inside of the decklid and hood this weekend in preparation for taking the car to the paint booth and getting it painted.

I did the engine compartment a few weeks ago and it turned out so great I thought I would save some time in the booth (I only have 1 day to paint the car in pieces) - so I decided to spray the inner pannels so I would not have to "flip" anything in the booth...

It is a solid color (mopar lemon twist yellow) with no metalic.

I am using PPG DBC base (mixed 50/50 with reducer) and 2021 clear mixed per the directions.

I got some dust in the clear somewhere, now I want to know what I can do about it if anything???

I have a pic of the worst of the panels, what do you think?

I also painted the inside of the doors with black PPG DAR (single stage enamel), and got some dust in them as well. Can I buff this out as well - and if so how to start?

I am enclosing pics of both the dust, the hood (yellow) this is the worst of it most panels are better, the door (black) did not show up as well, but it has a similar dust...

Any suggestions?

1 You can try to wetsand and buff but if you don't have a lot of clear on then you will more then likely burn through the clear coat

2 I would wetsand with some 2000 grit and apply 2 coats of basecoat and reclear (same goes for the black)
