What to do depends on how bad the orange peel is. You may have to sand it down smooth with some 400 wet, then reshoot. If you can sand it smooth with 600wet and then 800wet, and not go through the clear, you can buff it out.

Next time you spray it, turn your hose pressure up, reduce your clear with some high temp reducer and activated it with some high temperature activator.

The higher pressure will atomize the clear better, the slow reducer and activator will allow the clear to flow out better before setting.

but wait, Did you do one stage paint or did you use clear, how many coats did you do?

Wet sanding should do it starting with 600 and going up from there, you might have to reclear it if you wet sand that off but you might noit have to repaint if you used enough coats 3-5 should work of paint.

what they said above AND..... make absolutely certain that you mixed your paint properly. it's better to shoot slightly thin than too thick. do a test panel first.

orange peel

well i mixed the paint properly and it was not thick it was thin like it should be and we had the gun adjusted right, we ran about 90 through the hose and 30psi through the gun due to the setup we are having to use "money issue" but the orange peel isnt bad but it covers everything, and i did a single stage urathane nason paint.

wet sanding will do it but since you used single stage paint you HAVE TO make sure there isn't any buildup on the sand paper, if the dust starts building up on the pad throw it away, i know that gets expesive also but if you scratch the paint you would have to repaint and that is more than a sanding disk
