    Have I Wet Sanded Too Far?

    I'm attempting to repair a moderate depth scratch, and I started out with wet sanding after a thorough cleaning/clay, IPA wipedown. With a DA I compounded and polished the area after and this is what we look like. Have I gone too far through the clear coat below the scratch? I have an OEM paint correction pen for the scratch since it's fairly deep. I filled in the scratch with paint and clear coat since taking this picture, but I haven't done anything more with the faded area below the scratch yet, nor have I polished the new paint yet. What to do?

    It appears so. I'm assuming you tried to wipe off the blotch area below the scratch? Regarding what needs to be done with a sand through / burn through, needs to be repainted. Whether that is stripping whole panel, or a shop performing a blend within the panel.
