I know that orange peel has been covered in the forums many times, but I would like to clarify a couple of things...
I painted my 68 Beetle Convertible this weekend and the clear has some orange peel in it. I am using 2 stage PPG Omni, the clear is the MC260 and I am using the MH168 hardner. I sprayed 3 coats of color and about 6 coats of clear (I kept trying to get it to flow out). The clear flowed good in some spots, but overspray and lack of expreience made for a lot of orange peel. I have read that you can wet sand with 1500 - 2000 and then buff it out. I do not have access to a rotary (grinder style) buffer right now and I'm running a little low on $$, so I was wondering if my orbital buffer will suffice. Or if there is something I could adapt to my drill or DA... Also, how long should I allow the clear to cure before starting the process?
Thanks in advance for your help!
