When you blend your clear coat make sure you pay close attention to where the base coat paint ends and spray your clear coat a few inches past where the base coat was sprayed. If you don't do this your blending agent will burn into your base coat giving you a flat look at your blend line. Then if you go back to buff this blend line you will just end up buffing back the base coat creating a nasty mess.
Once you spray your clear coat down a few inches past the base coat paint spray your blender over the edge. Depending on what blender your using will depend on how quick the blender burns in. Be careful blending agents run VERY easily, so just spray on some blender with your AIR PRESSURE LOW and then air dry the blend line. Add a bit more if needed until the clear coat line is gone. If you notice that your blender hazed out but the clear coat blend line is gone then your blender has more resin that the ones I typically use. If this is the case take some of your reducer and spray that over the hazed blend and that should burn out some of the resins that are in your blender. Typically you should only be seeing this type of issue with darker colors such as black or dark blues. If you notice this regularly I suggest trying a new blending agent.
