    the only way to get rid of ' the orange peel' is to rub them with scoth brite pads to key the surface, then spray them with plastic primer then high build primer, rub that down then apply some more and again and again then the orange peel should be as smooth as a baby's ar$e. bodyshop will probably charge more for doing it but the effects are tons better.

    Thanks, not many of us saloon owners about
    Not sure about them being smoothed, I left them for the body shop to sort.
    I'll try & get a close up picture later & see how the surface is.
