    Go get your money back. It wasn't ready for paint.

    If its a catylized (2 part) paint you may be able to carefully scrape the run with a razor blade or a nib file and try to buff it it out.

    Isn't there a specific file for this? I'm think its 2 part.

    Its been a few or 6 months now. Can I wet sand the balance of the car, or buff it. How can I make the ARMY. Best it can be.

    It looks like a single stage non-metalic color. Level it out the best you can, maybe start with a razor blade, then 220 on a firm block and work your way up to 1,200, then rubbing compound and polishing compound. At that point it will be the best looking part of the car. I know no way to fix the craters next to it. Do they still do $29.95 paint jobs? Some one was in a big hurry.

    --> X2. Could go from bad to worse easily.

    If you decide to work on it, 2" blue tape over the entire run area and sand taped area with block and finish paper. It works on the high run and the rest is protected under the tape.
