you are right.. with the shiny micro dots... we need to remove them to have a good finish...

they will look like acne if you dont sand them out... I wet sand using 1200, 1500, 2000, 2500 (was looking for 3000grits, not available here)

then 3m perfect it II rubbing compound, dupont cutting compound, dupont finessing cream, dupont, foam pad glaze and dupont hand glaze

yeah i can sand most of the dots out and it comes up kind of shiney even after just a hand buff so hopefully after machine buffed will look even better, but even after the dots are sanded out theres still wrinkles in the paint, possible from the primer im not sure, should this sand out(yes i know it will take alot of sanding) so yeah any advice will be cool

they can be sanded out, use 1200, 1500, 2000, 2500

1500 will be safe enough... if you dont sand em well... they will give you problems ... and a disgusting finish... that's what I did I left some of the acne looking spots and it turned out to be bad... the panels that doesn't have any shiny dots went well...
