Polishing the blend is very difficult as in trying to make it shine you cut too much and then the blend is gone and you can see a line.

Think about it, you have 2 coats of new clear, then a few feet way you have none. Between 2 and that two feet away it tapers to nothing. That point where it's a 1/4 coat thick it's pretty vulnerable and just a pass with a buffer can cut thru it, so now you don't have 2 coats to nothing, you have 2 coats to 1 and 3/4 coats, and a line where you can see the end of the clear.

So being very conservative with your buffing and don't try to get it perfect.

you'll quickly discover that you must sand it before buffing otherwise you won't smooth it out enough. Treat it like an orange peel. I was told if you see a clear line you didn't burn it in good enough, but I could be wrong. No shame in that.

Just buffing won't do much,it's the colour sanding that makes the difference

It really depends on your application and expectations. Often the clear is "out of the gun done", often it's not, depending on your application. And of course depending on what you are after as far as the final product. If you want a kick ars paint job, you sand it flat and buff it. If you are after more of a "driver" or original look you do a light sand or none at all. No one can tell you what you may want to do, we can tell you how to achieve it, but we can't tell you what you want to achieve, only you know that answer.

it'd been my experience to say that if you want a good burn in it won't look perfect when you blend the clear, in fact, the more better "looking" blend ins I have seen come from mobile painters who try to achieve that look so they don't have to buff, but the painters that work in a shop will burn it in where you can see some roughness, which one would assume means a better burn in. In the end it should have factory peel but be nearly undetectable. Doesn't mean you have to have those results, but that you should aim for them.
