I can't seem to find the time to take enough pictures during the process. My hands are always dirty during wetsanding too I guess.



Door tops sanded.


Other door tops sanded (the bottoms are a different story)


Spot the blend line =/ In the sanded spot to the left of the badge. Goes around/on top of the trunk handle, underneath the roundel and back up on the other side. WTF


Top of passenger rear door, buffed


Bottom


Ready for buffings


Nasty texture STILL there. Will sand 1 more time, scared of burning after that





This paint is nuts. The whole car is some mix of solvent pop and outstanding orange peel, caked randomly on the doors. The 4 fender panels were decent though. Still textured but not as bad. The hood was another animal and I'm super happy I tackled that on the first day.
