Paint refinish?

So has anyone had their new camaros paint cut and buffed to eliminate the factory orange peel before having the sealer applied?

Mine does not have a mirror finish like that, but is actually more wavy than an orange peel. Did you have the sealer put on?

Go with Adams products and system and you can have it too. I know many of us have tried and tossed so many products away however Adams has stayes on the shelf longer.

Mine sure does have orange peel. Maybe the later built cars have better paint jobs?
