Hi Guys, Please can you help?
Im back working on my Mk4 1979 after about 5 years in the garage, I know terrible. Its was resprayed a bright red (BLVC 590 Monza Red) a few years back and now I want to finish the paintwork and make her beautiful and shiny.
I've done a load of research and think I know the process but just wanted to clarify with the experts. The paint job seems to be ok but I'm left with what looks like orange peal over the whole car. almost like loads of dull dimples. see the attached photos.
The process, I think goes like this:
- Clean the car of all dirt
- Wet sand with soapy 2000, 1500, 1200 then reverse
- Buff with a G3 compound and an orbital buffer
- Buff with G10 and an orbital buffer
Does this sound right?
Any tips from you guys?
is there any products i can buy to make the sanding easier?
Also there are a few chips on there where I put the engine back in and other minor chips in non obvious places. Can these be easily sorted out with a can of Monza Red aerosol?
Any suggestions here?
Sorry there are so many questions. I appreciate all your feedback.
