It always looks nasty after wetsanding but 2000 grit buffs out relatively easy. Doesn't look like you had much orange peel at all.
Have fun buffing

Ok... let me get this straight.

1. You started out ugly.
2. You went to uglier.
3. You got REALLY UGLY!
4. You fixed ugly, and went to pretty.
5. Now you go back to UGLY again!!!




6. It's time to go back to PRETTY now!!!!

It will come out fine!

(I must re-emphasize: Be careful with the polisher, not too agressive, especially on the EDGES of the fenders, bumpers, any sharp corners!)

You are using 2000 grit right? Pics look a little rough to me for 2000. Well anyway take your time buffing. You are almost home! Compound, polish and finally the glaze.


Good Luck,
Danny

You can put tape on the edges to stop from cutting them if you not sure. Also buff away from the edges not into them. Keep it moving with a light mist of water or final detail spray and you will be fine.

I know man this is just so wrong to take a perfectly good paint job and scuff it up but i am ready to be done with this project and i do not want to see another piece of sand paper the rest of the year, still have to paint the head light bezels and the lower valance,those should be a walk in the park after this.

Yip used 2000 on the whole car,it does look rough in the pics probably because the car is a mess right now,it needs a good bath before i move on.
I was watching a video i found on the web last night and they showed a very good step by step process on buffing a new paint job,i can't remember the name of the place now but they are in St Louis MO its a car restoration place,pretty big place from the video.
I will take it nice and slow buffing like i did with the sanding,because it's always easier to go back and touch up and take more off than it is to put it back on.

I second that - you'll burn through edges in a heart beat if you're not careful...
