paint problem

Sprayed nason thane . The trunk lid came out perfect,but when i srayed the final clear/paint the rest of the body was rough or gravel looking.so maybe i screwed up but wet sanded the bad with 1200 just to get the ugly off.I buffed it with meguires medium,fine then polish.It does not have the clear shine that the trunk has but it is slick.I know i can repaint but just wondering what happend

Maybe nothing happened!

Not sure your buffing experience but maybe you did not buff enough with your first or second step.

This is not uncommon and the best way to figure out is take the buffer to bottom of quarter and with the course cut hit it a couple of times in a one foot section and see if the gloss comes back. (it will)

There should be no reason to repaint and sounds like you just have not buffed the paint out enough.

I'm with Barry, What was your buffing procedure?
Might need to get a little more "ugly" off with some 1500 or go with a wool pad and some good ol' 3M Perfect-it II Fine cut rubbing compound.
Then a black waffle pad and some swirl remover. I don't think you got it "quite" buffed out yet.

paint problem

I sanded just right at the pit look of the paint. it is a cheap buffer.I think the rpm is around 2500.I could tell the difference between it and an air buffer.So go back to the medium cut and try it again.Will i have to buff the deck lid or should the rest come out and look the same?My understandung is clear is sort of yellow.The deck lid looks yellow compared to what has already been buffed.The color of the car is white.

497 isn't as "yellow" as some I've shot,it's really "clear" IMO. It's probly the fact that you mixed it in the Ful-Thane,or I assume that's what you did?

2500 is plenty fast for buffing paint. Usually between 1200-1800 is your max RPM especally with a wool pad and a solvent type compound. Cheaper buffers will slow down a bit with heavy pads but it should still be in a usuable range.

Thats great, the Nason is a pretty good single stage and as long as its a solid color you can buff to you have the gloss you want.
