Only way I know is to sand it out to a feather edge, re-prime and repaint and redo the clear coat. With careful work sanding with wet/dry paper used wet in 800-1100 grits you can blend it in pretty well.

You know why it's called God's country? Because most sane people want nothing to do with it other than seeing the pretty pictures nut jobs like us take out here.

Sand, prime and paint. I just started my cowling, its not to hard but I have OCD and for a first project I've been too patient/technical with it. I figure the hell with it its a jeep and its gonna get beat up just a little.
