final touches on color matched gril NEED EXPERTS ADVICE!!

so i dont have a pic at the moment but my grill has now 3 coats of clear on it now, it was dust free but now i have 3 or 4 spots where dust must have settled in it while it was still wet, there very small particles.

How do i fix this?

should i just lightly wetsand those areas and just add more clear? is it that simple?

Yep, just go through all the different grits until you get to the last one. Them polish and wax after that and you're done. I bought mine from a hobby store years ago, I'm sure you can find the online.

ok, i planned on doing like 2 or 3 more coats of clear, what should my plan of attack be? 1. do the polishing thing then do the clear once the dust is gone?
2. wetsand it, do more clear, then polish?
3. add more clear even over the dust and then use the polishing kit?

Wet sand then polish or use the kit then polish.
