Sure is. I still have to clay bar my car and hopefully that might take care of it.

Yup! Make the best of it and have some orange juice. Laughing There are ways to remove it but that requires some repainting, the very least wet sanding.....but not entirely sure.

it is. Don't even worry about it. Every production car has it to some extent. Even factory paint robots do it. I've watched some of the best painters in the country orange peel the paint job. It's just the way it is and it's way expensive to use paints that don't OP.

That is a good article, Chris. If you had an old beater to learn on, it might be worth trying it out. Make your mistakes on something you aren't trying to win trophy's with first. Those scratches and blemishes on the paint really makes you nuts doesn't it? I've used oil and 0000 steel wool on knives that I collect and it really helps to condition the surface on high carbon steel. I can see the principal behind wet sanding. I'd sure hate to learn on my own car first. I think $500 or more to have a pro do it would be cheaper than having to repaint the car.
