Paint help now! Need answer in 10 minutes!! thanks!

OK, I am an idiot for painting the first time ever at 11pm, but I did... so if you have an answer...
I am painting two doors with single stage urethane... got a little run at the top of the door, above glass on 1st coat.
Should I let it dry thoroughly (1 hour, 5 hours, 24 hours?) then sand out and continue to paint or let it flash 15 minutes and recoat the doors? The rest looks good so far.

Thanks!

Well, it looks like I'm posting after your time limit but I'll chime in with my 2 cents worth.

If it were my, I'd finish the project, let it set over night and see how it looks in the morning. It may not look that bad, but if you need to re-do it, it will be dryer and easier to sand down. Also, you may find more places you need to touch-up and you can do them at the same time.

I sprayed the rest of my 13 oz mixture... not any worse...
I will sand it in the morning and re-coat.
8-9 hours will be plenty of dry time?

I guess I will just run some urethane reducer thru my gun... really it's all new-again to me. I did this 15 years ago, but have forgotten the important parts apparently!

If its just a small run you can sand it out and buff it. Did you put three coats of urethane on? If so let it set for 3-4 days then take a single edged razor blade, drag each corner of the blade on some concrete, this will bevel the two edges just slightly. Blow off the blade. Now, take the blade and drag it along the run, it will begin to shave off the run. Repeat until its level with the rest of the panel. Lightly sand with some 1500 then 2000 and buff it out

Thanks man... impatience had me out there with 320 very lightly 10 hours later... it was 95% hard... dunno if I screwed up but I leveled it off.
It's matching a 16 year old paint job on my 98 so I don't need perfect but the runs really screamed amateur!

I watched a youtube vid on the razor blade but they didn't mention concrete... great idea!

I only had 2 coats on last night, so i lightly sanded the runs. I have out 2 coats on this morning... waiting 15-20 minutes and going to give it the rest of what's in the gun.
I have some orange peel now, but if I wait a week I can sand/buff that? Sherwin Williams single stage Urethane.

Id wait three days. Hit the dirt nibs with 1000 then hit the whole panel with some 1200, 1500, then 2000. I wouldnt sand them completely flat as the peel wont match then.

Thanks Kris. I am not happy withe the single stage choice right now... wish I had base/clear.
I may wait a week. The runs are BB size, but the peel is not even close to the same. Pfft! Hopefully the single stage will wet sand ok. If not I will sand the outside bare with the DA and prime/base/clear.
I had to learn on something!

Nothing wrong with single stage, nothin at all. On a solid color your not really gaining anything by going base/ clear. If you really think you need to re spray just sand the run flat then nib the door off with some 800 wet or some 800 on a DA. Personally id try to salvage what ya got before you go piling more product on and your mil count starts going up. Anything over about 9 mils of paint and your beginning to potentially have issues.
