I'm painting a fiberglass door with latex primer and painter. The door is all smooth with a couple of recessed panels. All was going great until I was putting the first coat of paint on one of the panels. It was drying so fast that the roller picked up a spot about 2" x 3". I panicked and tried to wipe the entire panel clean. Well, that didn't work so well and I ended up with a spot about 4" x 24" that had no paint. I tried to hand sand the edges, and then I put a coat of paint over all of it. Then of course I tried a second coat of paint! As you can tell, I'm a beginner!. The streaks of the raised edges look bad. I've looked at stripping just the panel, but the rest of the door is perfect and I don't want to mess it up. I've read that you can't sand latex. If there was a way to sand it, that would be best. Any advice? Just live with it?
