Sanded through to the base!

While wet sanding the clear coat I started to notice that I had gone too deep and hit the basecoat. Using Detron 2000 DBC and Transtar Kwik Gloss clear. What would be the proper procedure to repair this. It is hardly noticeable but I know it's there.

On what panel did you cut through? and where on the panel? What color? The best way to repair this is to mask off the surrounding panels then scuff the damaged panel with a grey scotchbrite, then spot in some color with light coats blending the color out from the damaged area gradually. Then clear the complete panel. If there is a good bodyline to do a tape rollback on you could keep the clear confined to a smaller area. Doing a clear coat blend is also an option but not for the inexperienced-takes really good gun/paint control and experience. Bob

The car is a 2000 Mustang Laser Red. I cut through on the left quarter panel just rear of the wheel opening and above the plastic bumper cover. I can see very tiny flecks of gray (DP50LF) but when you step away from it you cant see it at all.

You're lucky with that body design being that the quarter is fairly small and is seperated from the roof. You should be able to keep the repair within the quarter panel. Hopefully you have left over basecoat so matching will not be a problem.

Isn't laser red a "factory candy"? You might be out of luck...

Out of Luck! But, he should be able to spot in the color even if it is a tri-coat. But, the unlucky part is blending a tri-coat is a little tricky.
E9 is a color that is available in DBC in a 2-stage, so Montey may be OK!

Good Luck Montey!

Since the original post was 1 1/2 years ago, I would hope he has it fixed by now. LOL

This was a year and a half ago and it has been fixed. The job was an overall and the original paint "laser red" was a tri coat. Finishmaster mixed the job as a 2 step base and clear and added 20% more pearl to the base. As far as the sanding through problem, I repainted the entire panel and everything was fine.
