Well, it's painted

Thanks to all the members for your advice.


I am happy with the color, no real; blemishes, and a surprising amount of gloss.

Although I do have quite a bit of orange peal.
The p sheets says to color sand with 1200.

Does that sound right? It is only SS. I don't want to sand through it.
Are there any good sites for color sanding and buffing?

I think I'd start with 1500 and then go to 2000. That will cut a little less and will tend to keep you from going too far.

Singlestage urethane or singlestage enamel? The urethane you can get to sanding and buffing the next day, the enamels will take longer to cure before sanding and buffing. What color? How many coats were applied? Bob

I really couldn't get any good pics from the garage then it started to rain, I home to back it out sometime today.

Bob,
I used 3 coats of red urethane. Although I am sure some spots have two.

I was tempted to do a fourth but the P sheet called for two, so I thought three was a good compromise.

That P sheet doesn't take into account color sanding and buffing.

If you have a lot of orange peel like you say, I would be afraid of sanding through in spots if you try to sand all of it out.
