    Anyone know how to do this? I have it on right side of my car. The left side is fine. Do I have to repaint the right side?:confused:

    Paint waves? Huh? Are you talking about orange peel? If so, then wet sanding and buffing can remove most orange peel.

    No, they're not orange peels. When you look at the car, on the side, there's a bunch of paint "waves"

    I'll bet ya 10 bucks the wavy side of the car has been repainted. There is no way one side of the car will look that different from the other with a factory paint job.

    Without a good pic it's hard to say but I'm thinkin there is not gonna be a way to remove the waves. They were created when the side of the car was repainted and the only way to get rid of them is to paint it again, this time by someone with a little talent.

    Only guessing but I'm betting that's the problem.

    It's not a factory paint job. I had a cutom paint job.

    Sounds like the paint was put on too thick and ran. Is the line horozontal? If so, its a paint run. Gotta sand it down and repaint it.

    Thanks for the reply. It's not running horozontally. It's hard to explain. I'm probably gonna wet sand it and see what happens.
