You can't see it, but there are many places where I painted poorly and I have some serious sanding to do first. (Orange peel, etc.) Will do 400, 600, 1000, 1500 before buffing. Started tonight with the 400. I'll get there, but it's months off. I do not expect to be driving this year.

Every paint job I've ever done, I am always amazed at how sand scratches can be invisible until you start polishing. Dammit, lotta #600 and #1000 color sanding still needed. Gettin' old....

The scratches and small waves don't seem to show up till after paint. I was painting a car in my shop and ended up with little bits of debris all in the paint. My neighbor was cutting wheat on the next quarter section and there was small chaff in the air. I ended up having to sand and repaint. I love most of the mechanical stuff, but hate all of the paint related stuff.
On the other hand, my oldest son is an OKC firefighter and learned paint and body work on his off days and he can sand for hours till stuff is perfect. He has been sanding on his son's Fox body Mustang for his 16th birthday for several weeks. I don't have that kind of patience.

Stick with it and it'll look good.

Thanx for the encouragement. It's supposed to be a hobby, and it's turning into a chore.
RE the wheat chaff - I read a post on the HAMB where a guy painted in his garage, then opened the door, and the cottonwoods had bloomed. Said the car looked like a newly hatched seagull. Re-sand, repaint. Bummer, but the mental image is funny.
