    Friend of mine was going to have this car repainted because he thought the orange peel was too bad. I told him that I would take a crack at it (one small area) to see what can be done. Looks like this car had been sprayed several times with SS paint.

    Process
    • Wet sand 1000 grit
    • Wet sand 2000 grit
    • M04 with wool pad @ 1500 rpms
    • SSR1 with white pads on cyclo

    Fuckin' A! :bowdown:

    Best thing about single stages is you have a lot of paint thickness to work with.

    Yup... you are exactly right. SS loves sand paper!
