Old Fool It is possible you can just cut and buff the clear and get rid of the peel.

I use 3m sanding film, starting with 1000 grit and an interface pad on a da. then step up to 1200, then step up to 1500, then 3000 trizac without the interface pad, but using a bit of water to keep the pad wet with the trizac.

Other guys wetsand it by hand using the sme basic steps in grit grade.

Now buff and admire.

Caprice Classic Clear-Coat Problem

I recently painted my car. Base coat went on nicely, until I applied the clear. Unfortunately there is orange peel on the one side, and on the hood. I am fairly new to painting cars but this is not the first car I have painted. What is the best way to resolve this issue? Do I need to re-sand and start from the top, or can I wet sand the clear and then respray the clear? As I say I am fairly new to the trade. I am using a siphon fed gun, should I be using a gravity fed gun? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
