I sprayed the bonnet of my ute today and for some reason it ended up with an orange peel texture to it.
If I buffed it with a good cutting compound would that fix it up?

I'll get a pic tomorrow.
Another problem is that there are a few dull patches in the paint too. If i can't get it looking good with the buffer I'll probably rub it back and spray it again.
This is actually my very first attempt at spray painting with a spray gun, Needless to say it wasn't very successful.

if you sprayed in acrylic do a light layer of pure thinners it'll smooth some or most back. if you buff it out its no good for use of clear coat
