    You want to go past the sand through area with each pass but do not go all the way to your masking tape. Apply your base color in a feather spray pattern only covering the primed areas first. I can't stress enough on clearing the whole panel, Ask me how I know blends are difficult. Stop a couple of inches short of that and using your wrist you want to sweep the gun away from the surface. I was going text to a picture to Barry but the defect don't show on the cell phone so I will post here. After my normal sanding and buffing I could see a difference in color at the blend it looked a little like silver line at the blend line. This is on the lower rear quarter of a 57 Chevy ht.

    I like the comet and water or you can sand it with wet, you just need to scuff the clear coat. when you spray the base color spray one light.Remove the wet sandpaper from the water and rub across the surface you've just repainted in long, fluid strokes.

    This makes your vehicle look gross (like a peeling sunburn), but paint shops will want to strip it all and repaint it, which takes weeks and.Masking is a very important step especially when blending because you need to blend into areas that will not be totally masked.
