Wet sanding buffing?

Hello I will be spraying centari acrylic enamel pitch black 99a this week and the few times in the past I have sprayed this I always get an orange peel effect so I was planning on wet sanding and buffing out the paint.

-But I need to know how many coats of enamel to spray if you will be wet sanding some of it off?


-Do you spray more than normal?


-Also how many coats should one spray of this enamel? In the past I just did at least 3-4 coats.


THanks guys!!

OOF! Centari!!! Can ya still drag that stuff up?...
Anyway, I've sprayed that stuff. Its been a long time ago. But, I recall having some orange-peel issues myself. With what I've learned since then, I'd try to slow the kick down a bit with a slower reducer or harener. But, I'd say, Get it as slick as you can with 4-5 coats, if you're used to spraying 3-4. That'll give ya an extra coat to sand off during color-sanding. Also, I think I remember Centari (like most any enamel) being a bit of a challenge to buff. So be prepared for that. I may remember wrong... Maybe someone with some more recent experience with it will ring in and let us know.

Thanks for posting, as far as wet sanding and polishing does one need to wait a certain period of time before doing this? What happens if you wait longer than the day after say a week or a few months?

THanks...
