You might try using some 1200 & 1500 dry with an interfce pad on your da and knock the peel down, then buff. You may be able to nearly match the factory peel.

It's worked for me

Called SPI and told them the situation and they recommneded getting some 600 & 800 and wet sanding the panel. Then reshoot the clear.

Going to pick up some on the way home. Any recommendations for a block? The bedside has all of the those different shapes/ridges on it so that makes choosing the block a little more difficult. I'm going to ask the parts store and see what they say but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Wet sanded with 800 and followed up with 1500. Cleaned and then shoot the clear again it looks a lot better overall. I did manage to get a line of runs on the lower side, I plan to cut and buff to clean it up but do I need to wet sand then clear again to get the runs out?

On my numerous runs I just wait a couple of days then shave them down, block them smooth and buff.

Runs, just means, you got 'nuff paint on. Nice job, good pictures. Show us one when you got it buffed out and sitting in the sun.

Got the clear done. The 2nd round went much better but still had alot to do. Had to have a little help with the cut and buff from the FIL (used to own a shop doing body work). Long story short he hit it 1500 then 3000 on a orbital and then cut/buffed and it turned out pretty good. Had some peel in it but so did the factory. Matches well in my opinion.

I also put a U-Pol Raptor bed liner on it while I had the box off the truck. Put the pics of that up as well.

Overall I'm really happy with it and feel a lot more comfortable doing this when I move onto the 71. Thank you again for everyone's help - I really appreciate it.

Here are the pics of the Bed Liner - Went on really easy and the kit was only ~ $100. We'll see how it holds up to abuse over the next few years. It will be hiding on a tonneau cover so it shouldn't fade. Again Thank you very one for the help.
