    I’ve got my 74 MGB stripped, primed,filled,sanded primed and painted with PPG DAR enamel. Now the color sanding and buffing. I wet-sanded with 1500, then 2000 grit paper, buffed with 3M compound II and Swirl-mark remover, using a wool pad, then finished with Maquires finish rubbing compound. The surface is ultra smooth and hard, and looks great, except when the sun hits at the right angle, and thousands of “spider lines” show-up. Most are straight line, so I am guessing it’s from the sanding paper, not the buffing. HELP! Do I live with this? Will a good wax fill in the scratches, or do I need to start over with some different technique? thanks for any help.
