I have been reading and searching the forums, and have found great information so far (the thread on the Black 1960 Corvette is awesome).
I just finished painting my 1967 Chevrolet El Camino last weekend with Acrylic Lacquer paint from TCP Global (Restoration Shop Brand) over an gray epoxy sealer. I am told it is similar in quality to the Dupont Lucite paint. Its Marina Blue, single stage no clear. I dont see really any orange peel on the finish, but there may be a little here and there. Anyways, I would like to hand polish or rub out the paint to get a little bit of shine. I am not sure how long I should wait before I attempt this. Second, I am not sure what product(s) to use. I dont have any immediate plans to wetsand the finish if I can get away with it. What products or steps should I use to give it a decent shine (its not a show car/truck, and will be used often and get well driven). After the polish what steps should I take next, and how many weeks should I wait before waxing?
If needed I can spray some spare parts with some of the extra paint to test out the products first if thats whats recommended?
I really appreciate any information I can gain on this subject.
Here are some pictures after I rolled it out Sunday:
