product help & guidance

Recently painted with acrylic enamel (solid white color with hardener and reducer used) and have slight orange peel and overspray issues. What buffing/polishing compounds are recommended to be used with this type of paint to remove these types of issues to get that wet/glossy look back? Thanks

first it needs to be wet sanded Id start with 1200 then 1500 You'll also need a rubber squeegie to get the water off so you can see how much you've sanded...

Thanks. I've read that after the wet-sanding I should use a rubbing compound followed by polish, but there are so many products out there I'm a little confused. The consensus is to use 3M 5973, followed by 3M Finesse. Does that sound right? (I've spent the last nine months rebuilding/replacing the mechanics to my 64 Bird - engine, drive train, etc. My friend suggested and painted with the acrylic enamel. Gosh this car would look GREAT with a decent paint job!)

The way you say that it makes me think you have more than a "little" orange peel.

Not rely. Just enough to be noticeable close up. When sanding it dulls the finish, so am looking for advice on the right product(s) to return the shine.
