I did a base clear paint job using the kirker products. After shooting the clear my car looked terrible lot of orange peel no shine. I put enough clear so i could sand and polish. Well i did a couple areas it looked really good then i put my halogen worklight up to it i can see all kinds of sanding scratches? I started with 1200 went up to 2000 then used maguires cutting polish, swirl remover, and polish. Should i have waited longer its only been a couple days since i shot it? I'm still ok with it because you really can't see the scratches unless you put the halogen light up to it but would like to know for next time what i'm doing wrong. thanks to anyone with a suggestion.

What I try to do is let the fresh clear set for 14 hours at 70 degrees.

If it looks like I want to polish it, I'll nib file and flat sand with 1000. (some projects/repairs actually need orange peel in there to match)

THEN let it sit 12 - 24 hours so it can gas out all the way.


Then resand with 2000 and cut/buff till glasslike with the white pad..

Follow with the grey pad and polish.

If it doesn't get the inbetween time to gas out the buffer reseals the surface and it will dull/die back in short order..

This will make sensce to some but not all ...



Rx, so resand with 2000 and let it set a day then ,yep, resand a quiky with 2000 before repolishing
