Excess clear coat between driver A-Pillar and fender

Took delivery last week and car was in great condition but found out when I got home that “I missed a spot”. I was so concerned with rear hatch and bumper alignment that I missed the fact that there was Excess clear coat between driver A-Pillar and fender. I used a plastic tool to get a lot of it off but the fender actually needs to be removed to get the cracks. I can’t tell if the two are actually touching due to the clear coat in the gap. Has anyone else experienced this previously? This is blocking me wrapping my car. I have an appointment on 4/28 and my service center is really good. Fingers crossed!
