an oops

In the 60's I had my car all ready to paint and it got over 100 ", I had a rented gun and compressor and was shooting Laquer, and was blowing cob webs at it. I followed advice and kept thinning and couldn't get it to lay on right. finally just said I'll just lay it on and try to finish it later. when It cured I started wet sanding with 400 and It looked like gold sand under glass, I rubbed it out and everyone asked how I had got that look, the top clear as glass and the sand underneath.
