A bit of roughness but its most definitely because I didn't wet sand it down, didn't think it need to. Yea so I'm most likely gonna fix it soon.

try to wet sand it before you completely redo it get some 1000 gritt and try that if you cant get anywhere with that try the next step down i wouldnt go any less then 400 gritt but thats just me you risk pulling paint on the edges

sorry it took so long to reply the best way to remove paint is to either use paint thinner let it soak (this is really only good if its within the first 12 hours) but to get rid of dry paint the easiest way it to wet sand with 320 grit sand paper till smooth then switch to a finner paper like 800 or 1000 then repaint and do just like you would before
