Has anyone used this type of thing ??

I've finished a spray job and am a bit unhappy with the very small orange peel effect I`ve got in the clear coat . There's 3 coats on there . I don`t want to wet sand and risk breaking through as I've started to put the bike back together .
The thing is , some parts I had wet sanded the clear after a reaction and rescued are now really high gloss ,. These look a bit off when put next to the same colour with the orange peel in it .
Some parts I wet sanded after a reaction and broke through and had to re-colour coat and clear coat , I cant face doing that on the panels and legsheilds again . :oops:
I`m basically looking for a shortcut as the orange peel looks really ok on the large panels.
I could clear coat spray the horncast again and deliberately go for the orange peel look ...ha !!
It looks miles worse in the pics than it does in the flesh

Bit of gentle T cut?

OK I see a TV200. Which sort of magnifies what I was going to add.

If you dont strip it back down and do the job again - properly without the orange peel - every time you look at it, it will drive you crazy.

Do it now before you go any further - do it properly or it will drive you crackers.

How often do you get the chance to restore/rebuild a TV200 - and whilst you may be building it for yourself - the first time you hear someone comment "shame about the orange peel paintwork"...........

For what it's worth, I am in total agreement with Mark97s post! Personally, I could not live with that finish, especially on such a prestigious scooter, and even though you have got as far as you have, if you do not rectify the issue now, you probably never will!
At the end of the day though, your bike, your call!
Good luck with it, whichever way you choose to go!

Yes , I know ..... it’s only slung together for now just so I could see how the paintwork looked . Will have a go at gently polishing to clear coat back ... will be in tears if I break through... cheers for the replies
