Ok, ok, maybe 500rwhp!!!
Anyone have a guide for this? I'd like to bring down the blob of touch up paint by wet sanding w/o taking off too much clear in the surrounding area.

Yeah, before I learned about the right way of applying touch up (The OEM color match that Toyota supplies at their parts counters), I did it the wrong way: brushing it on thick. Well, one area I've done sticks out pretty bad now (5 years later...) and I want to eliminate most of the touch up paint.blkturbo! said:First:
What did you touch up with? Is it just the color in the little bottle? That stuff wont endure sanding and buffing since there's no clear on top. The technique you want to use only applys if there's clearcoat on top of the color to work with.
Only something with hardener (as in clearcoat) will take a beating from sandpaper and a buffer...otherwise, you're just cutting the bare color and disturbing thge metallic (if there are some) and then possibly buffing it right off, unless it's a big nasty blob, in which case, the touch-up wasn't done cleanly to begin with.
As little as possible to do the trick is the way to touch-up...as MDsuperstar mentioned.
