Paint advice needed
Any paint experts out there? I've done a fair bit of car painting in my time, but always with plain colours, where an average finish can be improved by cutting with 1200 grit wet-and-dry and/or a polishing compound, T-Cut etc.
I've knocked out, filled, and flatted the dent my lovely wife made for me, and sprayed it with Black Pearlescent from a rattle-can. Now, the finish definitely needs polishing up, but should I polish it before and/or after applying the lacquer?
I suspect both, but I'm slightly concerned that I might dull the surface of the base coat and then it will always be dull under the lacquer.
