Post clearcoat/ basecoat

A friend painted my car chrysler pearl and then 5 coats of clear with sanding in between coats. Still have pock markes and some orange peel. Can i eventually get this mess cleaned up? Of course it was home garage painted with a good HVLP gun.

With alot of sanding and buffing yes, depending on where the orange peel started you may have to reclear it. I'm not familier with the term pock mark, if you can describe it or use another term, I may have more or different advice.

Thanks for the come back King. To me a pock is a indentation in the paint or clear coat about the size of a pencil lead or smaller. hank

Ahhh, I see, well like I said, you may have to reclear, but with alot of messaging and buffing I think you'll be fine. Hope it turns out well for you.

Okay, you have orange peel and "pock marks", sounds like "fish eyes', Fish eyes are a result of contamination either on the car in in the air (both, garage or anywhere the vehicle is being sprayed. This contamination could generally be motor oil, oils from your hands, or other products containing either an oil or silicone base product, (i.e. armoural...walk into any quality Body Shop and ask if this is a recommended product...you will be given a resounding NO). Clean your painting surface as well as your painting area. By the sounds of it I would recommend re-clearing your project, I would not recommend sanding in-between coats. If you are colour sanding and polishing, put on three to four coats, allow ample cure time, (depending on temperature, if room temperature about three weeks, more if cooler). Using a block and wet sand paper, stating with 800 git if orange peel is real bad, and sand until the surface is smooth. graduate to 1200, 1500, 2000 and possibly 2500 grit for easy polish. Hope this helps

Your advice is right on Mr. Widetrack but I think this guy is done with the project the last post was 10 years ago!

I was looking at the poster Halloweenking thinking, I don't remember him and he has 1300 posts, huh? Then I looked at the date, 2002!

Just shows to go you, that there ain't a whole lot that's new under the sun when it comes to screwing up a paint job!!

Also that GOOD advice is timeless!!

BTW: Brian, I'm old and half senile, but I do remember Halloweenking. Seemed to know his stuff about paint and body. Wonder what ever happened to him?

Anybody?

Tom
