Novicedoityourselfer Not rely. Just enough to be noticeable close up. When sanding it dulls the finish, so am looking for advice on the right product(s) to return the shine.

Gosh this car would look GREAT with a decent paint job!)
The way you say that it makes me think you have more than a "little" orange peel.

deadbodyman first it needs to be wet sanded Id start with 1200 then 1500 You'll also need a rubber squeegie to get the water off so you can see how much you've sanded...

Recently painted with acrylic enamel (solid white color with hardener and reducer used) and have slight orange peel and overspray issues. What buffing/polishing compounds are recommended to be used with this type of paint to remove these types of issues to get that wet/glossy look back? Thanks
