Cut and buff clear questions
1 Attachment(s)
I painted the 66 Mustang and ended up with some orange peel with BC/CC in some areas. I am getting ready to start sanding and buffing the clear.
I understand how to do large flat panels, but how do you handle areas (like around headlights) where a buffer can not get into? I do not want to burn the clear.
The small pieces are all pretty smooth and free of orange peel in the tight areas. Attached is an example.
Thanks in advance again!

You can get a small 3" air buffer and they work really well for areas like that.. I believe the one I have is made by Central Pnuematic.. Or you can sand it up to 3000 grit and by that time the paint is starting to get a gloss already, and then you can buff it by hand..

Looks like 1 more tool for garage again.
But you can never have too many tools, right?

Another way that works pretty good on those difficult pieces,
if you can get it sanded smooth, a flow coat always comes out a lot slicker.
That's how I do it sometimes, just spray another reduced coat of clear
with a slow reducer. :pimp:
