Re: Paint project...need some pointers
Wet sand the clear coat until the orange peel is gone, then polish it.
When I did the mirror caps I started with 600 until the orange peel was gone from the clear coat, then moved to 1000 and on to 2000. Each grit took me about 30min. Take your time and don't be too aggressive or you'll go through the clear coat.
You'll even notice some subtle sheen starting with the 2000 grit paper.
After that I used Meguiars Ultimate Polish and hand polished each cap. If you have a polisher/buffer it'll be quicker especially with a relatively flat piece.
After it's nice and shiny put a coat of wax on and you're done.
