Help Orange peel in base clear coat

Hi i helped my cousin paint his trunk lid on a 2000 black cavalier. He went out and bought Shirwin willams paint and high build primer. Its a two stage set up with the base maker. We sanded the high build primer with 220 then 320 b4 we used the base coat. 3 coats of base coat waited for flash time then cleared 3 coats. The next day he came over my house and was saying about the orange peel. We used an HVLP with 1.3. I told him to wait on washing for about 30 days. I also told him let it sit for 3 days and then let it sit out in the 70 degree sunlight for 16 hrs to bake. I am thinking if i use a light granular grit compound it will bring the luster out and knock the orange peel. If it dont i am thinking on wet sanding the clear. Can anyone help me what is the best way on this. Thanks

You could easily wetsand down with 1500 or 2000 and buff out the finish.

Of course, I am sure you did it for free and if your cousin did it himself it would look like total crap, so feel free to tell him to go to h.... as well if he's not happy.

Hopefully he is not being too picky.
