hello, I would like to help you if I could. I own a small body shop and have been doing paint and body work for about 15 years. Take a small block of wood, a good smooth piece. I like to use oak or hickory, a good smooth piece. Wrap it with sandpaper and slowly wet sand the run. The hard block of wood will only allow you to sand the high spots = the run. Keep feeling the run and when you can no longer fill the run you have it sanded out. Just go slow so you dont go through the paint. Start with 1000 grit sandpaper, it will take a while but slow and steady. then finish with 1500 then 2000. The 2000 will be easier to buff back to a shine. To bring back the shine you will need a rubbing compound and a swirl mark remover. You can do it by hand but it takes A LOT of elbow grease. To do it properly you need a high speed buffer, not a polisher like they sell at wally world, that is just to apply and remove wax, you need a high speed buffer around 2000 rpm to make it work good.
Hope this helps
