Passenger door in freshly sprayed clear coat:

I plan to cut and buff this one later. The front fenders need cut and buffed as well but with the weather changing, I really want to get my hood painted as soon as possible.

Wet sanded with 1000 grit using a hard block.
Now removing the 1000 scratches using 1500 grit on a soft block.
For this I use 3M Dry Guide Coat as it helps me see the scratches I missed:

I will do the same when sanding with 2000 grit before getting the buffer out.

Callouts repainted. Not perfect but should look good from 10 feet. LOL

Passenger door and fender cut and buffed.
This is just the initial pass with twisted wool on a rotary buffer with Meguiars M100. Will follow with Chemical Guys V36 and then Menzerna 3800.
