The gnat will no dobt leave a mark, although small nike a dust nit. One run can probably be ignored due to its location right at the back of the shelter cover where it closes in front of the seat. The other (actually double) run is on the top of the shelter and will need sanded and buffed. A few dust nits that I might sand or just live with. Also, I had lightly sanded the lacquer before clear, and there are a few places where it seemed to kill the metalic look and it looks like a dark shadow there. Clear reduced it, but I fear that I should have left the Duplicolor unsanded. Or cleared it with Duplucolor first lightly before the 2K, because the previous time that I used lacquer clear, it brought the metalic glint back.
I think the main thing I've learned is that for future work, I need to find someone with a good booth that will do this at a reasonable price.
24 is enough as it is 2 part and once it's done reacting, it's done. A good careful wetsand and polish should have it looking great.
