Thanks to those who helped with the question I asked...
Didn't mean to offend, It's not how YOU conduct YOUR business, it's how your PAINTER conducts HIS.

I am over it guys... but it is how I conduct my business and not so much how the painter conducts his. As the consumer it was my responsibility to determine before hand if the wet sanding was included or not and my responsibility to kick it back to him and not pay him till I was happy. I did neither and realized it before the 3 comments.


Either way just wanted to up date this with the happy ending...

Went to Sherman Williams last week and talked to the auto guy. After about 30 min I walked away with what I needed to complete the work. Bought the variable speed buffer from Harbor Freight.



Wet sanded it with 4 times 1500 and dried it so I could see spots that still had the orange peel. Did not go back with the 2000. After that hit it with the cutting compound and them finish compound and it turned out like glass. All the orange peel is gone and I did not burn through the clear anywhere. Very happy with my sub standard paint job. Going to finish up the fenders in a few days.








Worked on the hood today. Got it wet sanded and then hit with

Looks awesome Moc, that looks sweet. How did you find your CL painter, you put a wanted ad, or you searched him? I'd like to find someone like this that can do it on the side near me in NJ.

Just searched on Craigslist and found him. There were 2 in my area, he was closer and liked him better on the phone than the other guy. Total crap shoot but looks like it worked out.

Gotta admit

Gotta admit that it came out great......

Good to see that the orange peel was in the clear and not in the base.

I like the way the Dr. Pepper can keeps coming up in your posts... Is seems that the red in the can matches to jeep.

I just found this thread. Had I found it before the end I would have called this a quality job for not having a down draft or oven. Orange peel is pretty much to be expected unless all conditions are perfect.

It looked good out of the gun and it looks good now. Nice job. Next time paint it yourself. If you can wetsand and buff you can paint.
