Need Help!! car paint imperfection !

Basically, i had some minor paint work done on my car about a year ago, but now days when i look at the car's paint job, it doesn't look smooth, it look very bumpy waxy and tons of orange peels but the the weird thing is that when i run my finger through the paint it feels smooth. it is very annoying, what should i do? will wet sanding the car paint get rid of this problem ? is there any other solutions that will fix this problem ? Thanks in advance!

can you take a picture of the paint ? if you run your finger through the paint and it feels smooth then it is either the body is dent and bent , I am not really sure what you mean by bumpy waxy and orange peels

Thanks guys for replying! the paint looks very uneven and bumpy doesn't look smooth but it feels smooth. i think is just the clear coat that is affected but i could be wrong! one more question! do you guys know if Autowerkes do wet sanding detailing ? if so what is the price range ?

when you look at it, it has bumpy surface. Then when you touch it, the surface is smooth?

Since you said it has been painted recently, there could be waves in the body. Whoever repaired it might not have blocked down the primer/filler properly, hence why the surface might look uneven at certain angles.

Yeh I think Truenosan is exactly right! So what is the solution to fix this annoying problem without repainting the veichle? Will went sanding it work or is there any other alternative solutions?

If the clearcoat has has an "orange peel" look to it, it can usually be sanded out. If the panel is wavy, then its poor bodywork and there is nothing you can do. Unless you are paying someone huge dollars, you will not get your bodywork smooth as its just too time consuming. Most shops will use an air powered sander to smooth out any filler or primer and this will result in wavy panels.

Yep, only way to repair the waves is to have the panel repaired and painted again.
