Never was worried about the drip... worried about the surrounding clear. You can lower drip no problem. With stock paint I wouldn't even risk with 1000 or 1500. That is the reason why I said I hope that they put extra clear.
When body shop knows the car will bea show car they know to put extra layer or two of clear because it will be wet sanded down the road. When this is just a respray @ regular shop on regular car... 600 gritt I would worry about touching the surroinding paint, but not the drip. You never know what the thickness might be.
Think before you post... I think YOU need to take it down a notch there tough guy. This thread is not to argue with you but to make sure that the person doesn't mess up his brand new paint job by making that spot fail soon after this procedure is done.
