Ok so I smoothed it out as best I could, shot eastwood silver and then 2 coats of their clearcoat. I got the second coat on pretty good (first wasn't wet enough) and now it looks decent except for a few rough spots on the hood that weren't shot wet enough. I plan to respray the hood to fix that problem. Now the finish of course has some dust in it so what would be the best way to get it smooth and shiny? It does'nt have to be perfect and most importantly i don't want to burn through the clear coat. The clear is probably pretty thin so what should I use to cut, buff and polish to get a uniform shine without causing myself any headaches? I have a rotary buffer and wool pad. I'm guessing I need a foam pad too? And what compounds and polish would be best for the job?
