    On the whole make no difference as a lot of cars have a peel on the colour coat under the laquer so not worth the effort.

    Additionally reducing the thickness of laquer all over by wet sanding will dramatically reduce the number of times you can cut it before going through.

    If you've rounded of most of the visible scratches it's probably worth going over with a hand glaze to reduce them even more until you feel confident taking abrasive paper to the Porsche

    Maybe worth getting Mark at Autobrite to take paint thickness readings for you before you start?

    This was localised to reduce some visible scratches

    The dealer had glazed them to hide them, it's me being fussy
    I was intending to pop into Mark's today as well as I was passing by and the whole world of work went mad meaning I had to get back, drove straight past

    Not strictly true this, yes some cars have peel in the colour, but a completely flat clear will reflect light alot better and they will be greatly reduced.

    You do have to be very carefull with thicknesses, but it is very easy to take off more paint when compounding with a wool pad than wet sanding carefully.

    I used 2000 once, and it buffed up really quickly with a cutting compound, didn't take long at all.
