Sanded through the clear.

I was recently color sanding on a rounded corner of my truck project, when I sanded through the clear and base coat. To give you some back ground, This paint job is with PPG deltron 2000. After block sanding the surface flat, I then cleaned the surface with wax and grease remover. I then sprayed 3 coats of PPG white epoxy primer tacking between coats. I then sprayed 3 coats of PPG base coat. I followed that with 3 coats of PPG 2042 clear.

I let it set for 60 days and then began to color sand. On one rounded corner I sand through the clear and base. I also have a couple of small edges that need to be touched up. How would you guys go about spraying the base and clear coat so that it will all blend. I know there has to be a step procedure for doing this job. There must be many of us that chip, scratch and sand through the paint before the job is complete.

Can you help

depends on experience realy

i would preffer to re-claer the whole panel than melt the clear in

any how

on the area i would usually 600 aroung the burn through then 800 the rest of the panel

on the burn throgh apply some primer just a light mist
allow to flash
apply your base on the area
let flash
then take your base a little wider
let flash
on the 3rd coat ad little more reducer and spray little further fliking the gun as you come off

let flash off

then apply clear to the panel x3 coats

hope this helps

Depending on your experience level and the color (metallic ) of your paint it could be blended. Perhaps the easiest thing would be to scuff the entire panel, apply one coat of base and re-clear.
