Who does the stickes? I noticed that quite a few treads need to be sticked that are not. This is definately a must read for the paint section. Thanks for the great writeup Mojoe!

you're welcome. I can't insist it be stickied, but I do believe this topic can be very helpful. I will just keep bumping back to the front page

If you don't see any orange peel after your job is complete can you skip the wet sanding and go straight to the polishing?

yes...of course. however, total lack of orange peel can also mean a thin coat of clear.....which I suspect to be the case with rattle can painting. so just don't buff through the clear. be a bit conservative....ESPECIALLY on the corners and edges.
