Touch up for fret ends......

I have been working on this guitar for the last few days. The problem is that the fingerboard has shrunk causing the fret ends to stick out. I have no problem dressing them. The problem is the finish. At every fret the laquer has popped off, leaving a small crater. My question is.. Should I touch the finish up before I dress the fret ends or after. My thoughts are that I will touch them up before, and level the finish while dressing the ends. Any advice would help.

I'm thinking opposite of what you suggest. I would dress the frets (assuming you are leaving them in?) Then touch up the finish with drop fills, then if needed some light spraying with an airbrush. Don't forget to mask. Take you time and then level sand the fills and buff.
