[QUOTE]Originally posted by the walrus: [QB] Thank goodness for cut and buff! As stated previously, much of the clear didn't go down so well due mostly to lack of skill, insufficient CFM, spraying in a garage, phase of the moon, etc.... Luckily wetsanding and polishing works and it looks like I will be able to salvage the paint job. I loosely mounted up the hood and bumpers so they were out of the way and didn't get knocked over in the garage. Nice to have the area cleaned up a bit after being in full body shop mode. I'll deal with panel gaps when I'm ready to bolt things on for good. <img src="https://www.ffcars.com/forums/members/albums/10107-justin-roberts/justin-roberts-2849-picture45484-car-1.jpg" style="max-width: 640px" alt=" - " /> So yeah...some of the clear not looking too hot. See list of excuses above... :p <img src="https://www.ffcars.com/forums/members/albums/10107-justin-roberts/justin-roberts-2849-picture45486-clear-1.jpg" style="max-width: 640px" alt=" - " /> After wetsanding and polishing. Now this I can live with, even if it is a bit wavy in places. <img src="https://www.ffcars.com/forums/members/albums/10107-justin-roberts/justin-roberts-2849-picture45488-clear-2.jpg" style="max-width: 640px" alt=" - " /> 50/50 shot, fender to hood <img src="https://www.ffcars.com/forums/members/albums/10107-justin-roberts/justin-roberts-2849-picture45490-clear-3.jpg" style="max-width: 640px" alt=" - " /> For those wondering, I am doing 1500 grit wet, 2000 grit wet, 3000 grit wet, then polishing compound on a foam pad with a rotary polisher, followed by swirl remover on a lighter foam pad. At this point the plan is to go panel by panel and try to get the whole car looking good in clear. Justin [/QB][/QUOTE]
