Put an extra coat or two on if you plan to cut and buff.
Gonna be one nice ride when you're done.

Ok its been about 18hrs. Im not happy with it. I'm going to try the color sanding and see if that takes out what im seeing. Its orange peel but the surface looks grainy. The temp was about 65 but humidity around 84%. What should I start with for color sanding?
I think this is heavy orange peel. I have 3 coats on it. Will that be enough? If not what do I need to to do recoat it to give me the build up I need?
Well what 68 RT said is what I would do I know it doesn't help much as he gave you two ways to go
It all depends on how bad the Orange peel is for me..... 3 coats ???? Light or heavy coats? hard call without being the one who sprayed it. I would error on safe side of blocking with a heavy cut and then respraying a couple more coats then doing a cut and buff.
Single stage can be a bear as I found out on that Ford I did.
I did a cut and buff on Black SS and sanded through to a previous coat that I had done previously in one spot no matter how much I buffed or sanded the Black was off just a tad in the one spot and you could see it.
This was from the same batch of paint from the same supplier same person mixing at the store and I used the same pressures and setting's on my gun to apply it, all I could figure is the person mixing it on the rack messed up or Temp & Humidity were different when I had sprayed the different coats or I had messed up mixing it myself same result either way I had to repaint the quarter.
