Default Paint question

Could someone with painting experience help me with this.
I painted a small section on our trailer with PPG paint and activator. I would like to know how long to wait before wetsanding and buffing the ridge left behind from the masking tape.

Thanks,
Rick

TooOld,
It is a single stage paint, no clear coat.
I think the numbers are something like AU 100 and 101.

Next time you do this pull the tape when it is still real wet then the edge will blend in for you

actually next time mask off with paper rolled farther back feather the paint out in steps and then after the last coat take a hot reducer ad spray directly over the dry area to melt down the feather edge and walla your done and no sanding or polishing well maybe a little polishing and you wouldnt even see a mask line or a difference in color. unless the colors or terrible off in the first place. your eye cant pick up a gradule change in color as a straight tape line creates.
