The greatest carpet makers in the world, were from Persia, they would always intentionally incorporate one tiny mistake in their works, to acknowledge that only God is perfect. You should feel exalted, that God picked your perfectly painted wheel to speak to you! And to kill a dumb blood-sucking mosquito in the process!

When we painted a tractor outside, Within 10 minutes it looked like someone shot it from about 3 miles away, Knats loved whatever was in the paint, ended up repainting it. Those dump pesky insects. :D

Sometimes if a bug lands in my paint, or varnish. The following might work for you as an easy fix. Wait until the paint is real dry. Pick out most of the dang-nab bug with a sharp exacto knife or safety pin. Than wet sand the paint. Than polish to a lustre finish. = works pretty well and sometimes you don't have to repaint using this method. If this doesn't work than swear at bug four times and than inbibe about a pint of gin or whiskey. (Kentucky moonshine works just great.) Guarantee paint job than looks pretty good.

Ken.. I keep eyeballing the auctions and sales for a booth and a sandblaster, but no luck yet..maybe someday! ikipp..I'll have to try that where its not too severe. This guy looked he was in it for the fumes because he squared danced around awhile before sticking! MPH.. I hear ya! I even did a recon in the back yard beforehand to see if anything was alive yet! I must have paint huffing skeeters, his crackhead buddy showed up last night for a fix, but the dog ate it before he got there! mwahahaha :D
