I reckon the whole car needs wet sanding which is a big job and I can't be bothered.😡😡
Yup... wet sanding is the only way to remove peel. I wouldn’t worry to much, just about every factory spray job has some degree of orange peel on it. Just do a panel at a time when you can be bothered lol

Anyone who is considering removing orange peel from a factory finish paint will have to be reminded, that once you do it and do it properly you will find it a lot harder to maintain.
It's worth noting to that it will show up defects a lot easier once the paint is flattened, and if it's a daily car then your wasting your money and time.

BMW and Mercedes paints are renowned for bad orange peel, but you can remove the tips of orange peel by using Demin pads and a compound. This won't fully remove the peel but it will reduce it a lot better .

The CarPro denim and velvet pads are very good at making a significant improvement with orange peel. For optimal results use them on a rotary. Care is required as these pads generate some serious heat.
