Hey guys, i searched the forums, found a couple articles, but wanted to be sure on a couple things. As this is the first time i have used single stage. Just painted a car with single stage paint. Came out pretty nice. Aside from some dirt and dust here and there getting into the paint. So i read that you would take 1500 or 2000 grit, wet sand it to make it nice and flat then polish. Im using 3M stuff, i guess there are 3 stages to this. 1 is rubbing compound, 2 is machine polish, 3 is final polish, my understanding anyway. Since its single stage, i know its suppose to dull when sanding, and im guessing wont have that nice depth until i do all 3 stages. I only have the first 2, i didnt buy step 3 yet. But its smooth like glass now, no dirt, no orange peel. My question is, am i going about this right? Afteer the first 2 steps, it still looks a little dull, will that step 3 really bring out the shine and depth? Luckily, i have only done the lower portion under the front bumper, so if im doing it wrong, i can correct before doing the parts of the car everyone will see.
