Hey i just painted my engine cover, and was in a bit of a rush with the last coat but now i have a run mark right on the front corner where everyone can see. It's only small but noticable, is there any chance i can sand it back then paint over it again, will it blend in? thanks

Unfortunately if you want it to come out nice you'll need to sand it back and paint it again.

I'd tend to agree with chris e. You could try it but to be sure it would be better to sand the entire job with a medium/light wet and dry and redo it.
