So what do you think? Should I wet sand the clear coat? And then do I polish it after?

There seems to be some orange peel.

I would you all ready put in all that hard work... Make it look the best it can wet sand with some 1500, 2000, 2500, and 3000 if you really want to

then just polish it after and it should shine

Win!


When you're done with the new paint, make sure to scuff it up before you hit the track. Nothing attracts grass and pavement like a blemish-free paint job.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Wetsanded the clear coat on the tank, now I've got to polish it up.

Also my hotbodies fairings came today. I'll have to cut holes for my frame sliders and then I'll mock them up and give a review on how they fit!

Some pics:
