After years of people telling me to wetsand my clear, i did.

This was two weeks ago. It took about 6 days.
800 grit sand
1000 grit sand
1500 grit sand
2000 grit sand
3m rubbing compound stage 1
3m polishing compound stage 2
3m finishing compound stage 3

I stopped there and waxed it. When shit stops falling from the trees i'll take the wax off, put the final and seal it.

Car looks good:P

The car was painted 3 years ago by me and some of my friends. Since we did the paint ourselves there was tons of orange peel. We used good paint, and other than a few imperfections it came out pretty good, so i figured i'd get it as good as it can be. But i'm a pothead, so that took me 3 years.Forgot you even had this car haha, what wheels are those?

I believe they're KOZO wheels. I had them powdercoated black last year. They're made for e39.

Thanks guys:)

A lot of work to wetsand the whole car. I don't blame you for taking 3 yrs to finally do it. Are you able to post some high-res pics later?

Eventually i'll take some pics with a DSLR. There's still people with much better paint than me around.
