im about to paint my car this weekend.. car is already primed and ready. the paint i bought is Dupont two-stage Deep Navy Blue Pearl w/ metallic..and clear.
i took a piece of sheet metal and primed it to practice ...after i laid 2 coats of paint and 3 coats of clear it came out with some orange peel in it. Ive been looking all over the internet to find out how to remove it. I bought 1500 grit sandpaper and tried to practice before i actually paint my car but i cant seem to remove the sand scratches. I was using turtle wax rubbing compound because the M84 i ordered hasn't came in yet. i used a buffer and i tried it by hand in different areas with different pressure on the sandpaper..
Do i have to sand the base coat smooth before i lay the clear? because i cant tell if the base coat or the clear coat has the orange peel.
here is a pic of my hopeless efforts
