touching up BC/CC

OK guys. i'm at it again. I sprayed my SPI universal clear over the prospray base. A mosquito landed in the clear as well and is buried in it. We didn't see the mosquito until the clear was dry. It won't likely buff out. What is the fix?

is it in the last coat? it should buff out. take a paint stick or a carpenters pencil about 2-3 inches long. wrap some 800 wet or dry around it and using it wet concentrate on the spot. the cut and buff the rest of the car as usual.
how about some pictures of the car when its buffed?

I think this thing is in the first coat. I don't think I can sand him out.

I am going thru same thing on my door. Gnat got into the 2nd coat of clear while spraying the door....this morning

Clear coat is pretty thick stuff, but you will have to sand your bug out of it no matter how far down you need to go. .. Hopefully you will not get into the basecoat..

My steps will be .. Wait until tomorrow at least until the clear gets hard enough to wet sand.... I think its a day to 3 days(after 3 days clear gets max hardness i believe).. its pretty warm here so it should be sandable in a day.. I may start with 320 wet sanding my bug spot, until i've cut the clear decent and have most of the gnat out... I will then do the entire door.. in following steps--> 400 then 600 --- 800 to finally 1000.. Once my nat is gone and the door is as smooth as I want it, I will re-clear my door.. Mine was in the 2nd coat but I want good coverage of clear on there..

There is no other way I know of to get the bug out.. sorry its a lot of work

Others may say I am a hack and or crazy as hell but I have taken care of situations like yours with a dental pic and a magnifying glass.
Slowly and methodically pic into the clear and get the insect parts out.
Then gently scuff the area about the size of a pencil eraser.
Mix up a little UV and place a very small drop of it into the crater with the dental pic.
The drop will shrink back, so add a second drop in an hour or so if needed.
Let cure overnight, block out as you would the rest of the car.

I have used this same technique for repairing a few solvent pops too.
