woe is me! it was a lovely thing,a bright and smoooooth,straight!!!factory!!!!new door.did'nt have a wave in it.so what did this bonehead[me] do?painted it on probably the worst pollen etc. day of the year!~full of trash!!!![ i dont have an indoor place to paint] and really the wind was not blowinggggg! when i started.man... the paint went on like someone that knew what they are doing did it,oh yeah except for trash between each coat.being fairly pessimistic at this point i'm guessing that no amount of color wetsanding/buffing will help but i dont know that from actual experience.i've got three coats of dupont centari acrylic enamel laid down.should i invest the time in wet sand/buff?help!!!jimm
