so i have a paint project i took on (valence/sideskits) and layed my base coat and was pretty satisfied with the outcome of it. had overspray and used a claybar to kinda clean it up and was okay with the results so i decided to spray the clearcoat. it came out really bad. orange peel galore. im kinda thinking either i didnt have my gun adjusted properly and/or i didnt mix the clear properly.
how do i go about fixing it?
1. do i wet sand and how far up the grit scale do i go? or use a cutting compoud?
2. i tried the wetsand after the basecoat and wasnt too thrilled with the results. i wet sanded to 2000 grit and used a DA polisher with the light abrasive to clean it up but it still looked hazy so i said eff it and just sprayed another coat.
basically im asking what are the proper steps after laying the paint to achieve a decent looking paint job. im not going for a show winning coat, just something that looks good.
btw im using sherwin williams ultra 7000 product
thanks in advance
