Not to disagree, but I don’t see how 220 is fine enough. I can easily see 1200 grit scratches with the naked eye. Truth be known, I have and use flexible 4000, 6000 and 8000 grit for impossible to machine buff spots. And I find that they are necessary. I’m going to put a guitar buff on the little box I started to see what happens. It may turn out to be so shiney I won’t be able to see it ! We will see.

BTW I am shooting the Behlen vinyl sealer, then the Behlen lacquer (both) with a Preval unit. That’s close to a rattle can… just no rattle.

Is this like the orange peel you want to be rid of ?
