removing a run from acrylic paint

Just painted a car with urethane acrylic. I got a run near the spoiler on the back trunk lid. Can i sand the run out in a day or so and just machine buff the spot? There is no mettalic in the paint its just a white. Also if i want to buff the whole car to knock down some the dust in the paint job can i just a final glaze or should i use a cut polich first then the glaze? Thanks really appreciate any help.

I don't know how bad your run is but here's my fix; it's probably a bit unorthodox, but........if you start sanding in the area of the run, you stand the chance of also sanding paint from the surrounding area.......unless you are a lot better at it than I am. I'll tell you what I did on my project. I had painted the dash, firewall, door edges, etc. with acrylic enamel and got a couple of runs in the door edges. I let it dry for several days, then used a single-edged razor blade and positioned it perpendicular (you must stay perpendicular!) to the surface, and carefully started lightly scraping off back and forth to remove the excess buildup of paint. When I was getting close to the run and the surrounding area being the same level, I used some 1500 grit sandpaper on it, then used Malco TRU-GRIT cutting creme to take the sand marks out. A buddy who worked with the stealth coating they put on the B-2 bombers told me to try it, and it worked great. Just a thought.

Thanks Mark i will give that a try. Yes it is very difficult to just sand the run out without going too far around the run.
