Have a 46 IHC steering wheel that I restored and laid on clear (eastwood 2K clear). And first two layers went on great then on last two I had one run and some dust particles. I did lay in a drop of clear on small creators. How should I go about polishing? I want to be careful and not go crazy looks like it only need a little work. I do have that red polishing cone I could use, or do I need lambs wool? Will and simple scratch remover compound work or do I need to do like 3 steps of different polish etc. And what grit would be good, also wet or dry? Thanks guys.
P.S. Also noticed near run, it has a slight milky appearance will that eventually clear or dry out?

You may want to do a lot of hand polishing there, if so it
will save a lot of work to first sand it to a really fine grit
to make the polishing go faster.
I would work my way up to 4000 grit first.
Mirka makes a foam pad up to 4000 that would be good
for that, it's very flexible and can be used wet or dry.
It's called Abralon.

(It's not custom painting-it's custom sanding)
