Hello Everyone,

I got the deck lid and rear portion of the driver's QTR panel sanded today.

I'm going to wet sand the whole car with 1000 grit to knock down the orange peel and then sand the whole car with step 1 of the dry sanding process.

After that I will dry sand the whole car with steps 2 and 3. I hope steps 2 and 3 will go VERY fast since the paint will be flat and even.

Here you can clearly see how this sanding process works.

This is after wet sanding with 1000 grit. You can see the clear coat on the deck lid is flat and the orange peel is gone. However, there is little to no gloss and there are a lot of scratches left behind.

This is after step 1 of the dry sanding process. The heavy scratches are out and a fine haze is left behind and now you can see the reflection of the lights and my garage door.

Different angle. You can see the reflection of my garage ceiling lights and my open garage door.
