    my car is a POS...to say the least. the paint has been sprayed, rattle-canned, and BRUSHED on....would buffing (heavy cut compound) make it at least somewhat presentable.....all i want is a single texture over the whole car :hs:

    My truck is like that. :ugh:

    Before I tried anything on it (last winter) it was all one color, from 20-30 feet away. After I polished it, the shitty respray job went a nice shade of blue and the rattle canned parts got a darker, nasty, kinda flat shade of blue.

    Im not going to complain too much. The truck is 27 years old, is my beater, and only cost me $200.

    Unless the paint is very soft, you will probably have to wetsand, then buff it out.

    if the car is really a POS and you don't care about it. Look at some threads on autopia along with other sites to get information on how to wetsand. It's not a terribly difficult process but it does require alot of patience.

    Look at it this way, it will give you a chance to hone your wetsanding mAd SkiLLz and one you cut and buff the paint, it actually might look pretty damn good.
