I re-read the thread trying to find out if it was single stage metallic or solid color you sprayed...if it's a metallic color,sanding and polishing is not an option...as you sand for polishing you will knock the tops of the metallic's and that can't be polished.

If what you sprayed is a solid color single stage any good quality, non silicone polish would be recommended, Meguier's, 3M, Mother's etc. You should have enough material to polish, it sounds like you put on a bout 4 coats after the last re-do...if you wanted to you could put another two coats on without a problem...any more and your getting a bit to much mil thickness.

sorry, solid color. i have 4 coats on the fenders an 3 on the doors and hood. I think what I am going to do is put 3 coats on the body shell then maybe give it a quick sanding and shoot two additional coats on the whole car. I think Ill shoot earlier in the day and I wont get so much debris. no booth

Shooting white on white is difficult for every painter so your not alone...everything else...sounds good.

One of the things I do when I have a sand through is use the SEM brand aerosol etch primer. You can spot it in and once dry sand it with 600Grit and seal that spot. Also keep in mind that sealer has a small window, that once passed, needs to be sanded with 600Grit before painting.

Blending white is always a challenge. It wants to lay on top of the paint your trying to blend it on. Using a blending agent helps a great deal.

actually I was a bit inaccurate in my post. I was going to go 1000, 1500 and then 2000. I have been using a harbor freight polisher for the last several years. I am finding it to be heavy and a bit awkward. Does anybody make a lighter unit? I also have several areas that are difficult to get at with a power buffer. Is it possible to do a satisfactory job by hand in these areas?

It is possible to hand polish those tight areas that a polisher can't get into, but, be prepared for lots of rubbing. In those hard to get at areas, follow the same cutting procedure you normally would, just make sure that you finish extremely fine, I like to finish areas like that with 3,000 Grit Trizac from 3M. Other company's make a 3,000 grit product for less money but in the long run, you save time and energy by stepping up to a quality product like 3M. Use the same polish and a micro fiber towel, lots of elbow grease and it'll come out like the rest of the vehicle.

Ditto on the trizact 3000, but go 1 step farther to 4000 trizact and hand polish with a light compound and microfiber towel.
Makes it EZ

There are many company's that make lighter polisher's that have better speed control. Most quality air tool manufacturer's make polishers. These polisher's are, like many things, personal preference. I was fortunate in the fact that I went from body shop to body shop when I was a paint rep and tried out many different brands until I found the one that I felt worked for me. It might be worth a few calls to local shops and get opinions from the painters and or detailers in those shops...if they let you hold one in your hands that's even better...that way you can check it out for balance, speed and agility.

As much as I agree with you da34guy about using 4,000 grit, at about $10 a pad from 3M it does get pricey, but, will it make hand polishing faster, without a doubt...EZ...It might be my age, but hand polishing is never EZ...LOL....easier, yes.
