body shop in the boston area?

So I think I screwed up my touching up on my back bumper. I applied a very rigid surface of touch up paint and clear coat due to the frickin cold weather here and how that makes the touch up paint dries very fast. Are there any Boston people that know where to possibly fix this?

Too easy. Remove the touch-up paint from your cars surface using either acetone (also known locally as nail polish remover) or lacquer thinner.

Touch-up paint is lacquer paint which dries, but never chemically changes AKA cures (unlike the rest of your car that is chemically hardened and therefor isn't affected by these products).

Remove the blob, clean the area, and next time use a tooth-pick to give yourself more precision and keep in mind you're better off doing multiple thin layers than a single layer of paint. You'll have a better bond, it'll blend in much easier, and you'll be much less likely to screw up.
