I got some runs in the Omni clear. What do I do now? Is there a tool I should invest in? What is a procedure to remove the run?

Yes you will have to nib file and or sand it out, and if you did'nt apply more clear to the area when the run developed be very careful and follow Len's procedure for run repair here......http://www.autobodystore.com/run_repair.htm

I am a new painter, got runs in my first paint job recently. Follow Lens advice. If you don't have the nib file he recommends, don't fret. Take a razor blade and shave off the run. Be sure to hold the new razor blade at a 90 degree angle to the panel and scrape the high part off, moving down the panel. I wouldn't scrape until about 2 or 3 days after the clear has set. Do as Len says tho, and cut that big drip off, if you have one, at the 18 hour mark. After you shave the run down to very near the rest of the clear on both sides of the run, use 600 grit wet paper on a solid block.Do not use a sponge pad because it will conform to the high spot and allow the 600 grit to rub off clear beside the run. Been there done that.
The Motorguard Co. makes "run blockers" for this. They are aluminimum blocks about 3 inches wide. The do not give when wrapped in sandpaper and they work excellent. Course nib file is what you need for clear. The fine nib is too fine in my experience.
