it depends on how bad of a sag and the location....also depends if there is enough clear around it or you might sand through

i use a file then 400 dry then 600 wet then 1000/2000/3000 wet then buff

You should let the clear dry completely before trying to sand the run.



400 dry?? How big are the runs you put in clear? May as well use a weed wacker.:p

If i catch a run while i am painting something i grab a roll of 3/4" tape then tear off a chunk. The i make the take taunt between my fingers, then lay in on top of the run and lift off the tape. It make take a couple of tries but if its your first coat of clear you can usually almost fill it with the second and if not it sands out real easy. Other than that its a razor blade or 1000 on a peice of a paint stick.

what a puss. half the time i run the run with more clear right off the panel! lol its worked before, and saved my ass a couple times on the rhinos. i went a little heavy on a rhino i painted a month ago, left a foot long curtain, said ahh **** that, flowed it right off the hood, the next day there was no evidence. just make sure to run ur finger down the bottom of the piece were the clear builds up as it dpours off the panel.

im guilty of the same, works good if its near the edge on a verticle/near verticle panel ... otherwise dont bother or youll have a mess on your hands
