Thank you Dylan, Does orange peel get worse as the paint/clear coat ages? While traveling I happened to come across a Bentley dealership so my friend and I went ahead and walked in to see a "high end" car in person and even the 1 owner, garaged pre owned car they had for sale had a piano like black finish that looked to the eye, better than what I have seen on a brand new black silverado. Does the orange peel get worse with polishing and waxing the paint? I have a 6inch orbital polisher and compared to what I was able to do by hand the orbital polisher/waxer did much better. Or am I able to see the orange peel more since that polisher really shines up the clear coat and removes the oxidation with the polish compound? I have gotten a few quotes from mom & pop's restoration shops that to repair all the dents I have in the truck, sand, and repaint 4 coats, and then 3 coats of a seperate high quality PPG or Valspar clear coat would run me about $7000 an they guarantee that it will be "Show Room Qualtiy" that will also be high enough for an auction house (not that anyone would bid on a 2000 silverado). And since I actually use my truck as a truck, putting that type of money in repainting the truck is not something I want to expense at this point.
