Spraying lacquer for the first time


Hello,
I just sprayed lacquer for the first time, using a 2 stage HVLP sprayer. I ended up having a couple of runs. I followed on person's suggestion of scraping the run and then sanding it smooth. I was wondering, can just re-spray the area where I leveled the run, or do I need to spray the whole side again?
Thanks, V

Lacquer is a "self healing" material.
Spraying more lacquer over the damaged area is a suggested repair procedure.
I just had the same problem.
My suggestion: Spray the whole surface.

Sand the runs smooth as possible. Get a light at an angle on the area to make sure you got it all as it will show right through your surface as a "sealed" run.
A agree with Lew. When I get a run in a door I sand it smooth, then reshoot the whole door so there are no differences in appearance from different coats, dry fall, or reflectivity. It doesn't matter what finish it is.
