Help with DIY spraying

so today I decided to have ago a temporary fixing my lower rear quarter.
I have the proper matched paint of D43 that i got made up.

So to cant a long story short it didn't come out right which is strange as other side is fine.

After i sprayed the laquer on i let it dry and then rubbed down with wet dry paper 1200/1500 grade & used G3 to buff iy out.

Anyway how do I correct this balls up please?.is it to much paint or laquer??

Thats a lacquer line, you will be chasing it forever if you keep trying to rub it away, the whole quatre would need lacquering really to get rid of it.

When you say temp fix, what do you mean? As there must be water getting into the arch to cause the rust bubbles.

I would tbh. To do it properly and well it would need to go somewhere. I dare say you will make it worse, and tbh your wasting your time. Rust is there for a reason, maybe need metal plates over and holes and looked at properly.

A decent Bodyshop should have no problem sorting it though. I wouldn't try rub it back or anything. Just take it to them as is and tell them what you've done and they'll sort it

Its hard to really tell, but that doesnt look too good really mate.

To be done properly the whole quarter will need blending in.

I know you have just done a temp fix etc
