Dust Under The Paint

I currently have a 1988 Firebird that is painted red and black. Only the spoiler and part of the hood is black the rest is red. But I painted it in my dads shop, but he doesnt have a dust free environment so we just hung tarps from the roof to prevent paint from going everywhere. But now i have dust under my paint. I also herd if u wax it really well 3 times that the dust will be gone from the paint is it true?

Without any information on the type of paint (base/clear or single stage,solid of metallic,gloss or flat) I will say that it may just need a cut and buff. BUT that is if it is single stage solid( not metallic) or base clear and it is a gloss type paint finish. If it is flat or semi-gloss forget it you cant buff out that stuff to well if at all and save the flatness of it. JMO Tim

No amount of waxing will remove dust in the paint. You can sand out some dust in the clear and buff to a shine, but it depends on what paint you used, how much dust, how deep, etc. Lotsa of variables involved... Can you post pics or does it not show in a photo?
