The "orange peel" look on your car's paint will be gone forever. It is impossible for it to ever come back!
Wet sanding is a practice that should only be performed by those who have honed their skills. The clear coat on your car is about as thin as a sheet of paper. So you have to be careful.

Look at the finish on your car, if you see "orange peel" in the finish,

Our goal is perfection! We mask off edges and wet sand the paint usually with 1500 grit sand paper to remove "orange peel" on brand new, older cars or freshly painted cars with a good clear coat. Also known as color sanding. When we remove "orange peel", most all scratches, swirl marks, water spots and other paint defects are also eliminated. We then use a rotary machine with a cutting compound to remove the 1500 grit sanding marks. After that we machine polish with ultra fine polish for a wet looking mirror finish. We then finish with a long lasting sealer and carnauba wax that is very smooth to the touch.

glossycar.com4. Polish Angel Cosmic installed on your paint $300 - The most durable, glossiest, wet lookingglass like protected available! Easiest to keep clean. Not "squeaky" feeling like other ceramic glass coatings, but super smooth to the touch! Lasts about two years. 1, 2 or 3 must be performed first to prepare the paint. Polish Angel Cosmic seems to be the most durable, scratch resistant and you can re coat it anytime! It's not cheap.
5. Polish Angel Rain installed on all of your exterior glass $100 - Lasts about two years! It's like RainX on steroids! It provides a clear, thick glass like protective coating over glass to keep windshields cleaner and clearer. The coating is resistant to wiper blades and outlasts ordinary glass sealants. Dirt is less able to stick. Insects and ice are easier to remove. No smears caused by wiper blades and allows them to glide noiselessly over the smooth as ice glass. At only 20 MPH you will see rain beading away! We machine polish the glass to prepare it for this treatment. Hint, for spot free results, never put tap water or store bought windshield fluid in your washer fluid. Just put distilled water in it. That way it leaves no water spots when you wash your window with your wipers!!
Some cars we will not wet sand if the clear coat is too thin or the paint is too hard and baked on. Some cars, mostly European cars, have super hard baked on paint on the front and lower half of the car to help prevent rock chipping. the hood, doors and other areas can still be wet sanded.
Some people say factory finishes do not have enough clear coat to sand and you will not have enough protection if you sand.
If the lowest point of the clear coat is enough to protect the car then if you sand to that point and no further then you car will look its best and still be protected.
The secret is to never sand any more than the lowest point of the clear coat. See illustration below:
It's like getting a new car!
