    Can orange peel be removed or lessoned by just machine compounding?

    Can orange peel be removed or lessoned by just machine compounding?


    This is 1958 Chevrolet Belair that I compounded heavily from the center chrome trim up including the hood, roof and deck-lid. The owner didn't want to spend any more than $300.00 so wet-sanding was off the table.


    The below pictures don't show the results as well as looking at the results in person but you could definitely see there was less orange peel on all the paint above the long stainless steel trim running down the car and the paint below the trim.

    That was a huge car to buff out...

    Note the use of newspaper even back then to cover and protect the wheels and tires during the buff-out...


    Question: Can orange peel be removed or lessoned by just machine compounding?

    Answer: You bet, been there and done that... but wet-sanding is the right way...



    See this article...
