Mark : It's not the aerosol that causes orange peel effect. This can happen with factory paint jobs done by robots just as much.
Mark : it is proper preparation and technique that reduces orange peel.
Mark : Even if you get orange peel you can correct it.
Mark : For the things like especially deep scratches or orange peel, they must be removed with a technique known as “wet sanding” or “colour sanding.” This is the process of using a moistened series of specially designed automotive sandpaper with very fine grit to remove the top layer of clear coat. The surface then has to go though a staged extensive buffing & polishing process to bring the shine back.
