Any modern day spray painters advice please

Hi All


Its been 20 years since ive resprayed a car , The spraying is no problem but the paints im using. The kit i ordered is new to me being polyester.

I am starting with a polyester filler primer straight forward then a polyester base coat and then a 2k high gloss clear coat.#

What i want to know is can i flat back the base coat to get rid of any imperfections before i clear coat (if i get any) i really want to take my time and get it perfect before clear coat as im putting a small amount of flake in the first coat of clear so once done there is no turning back without a lot of hassle.

Any info would be great as searches keep coming up with information on polyester primers.

Thanks in advance

All spares parts for 156 and 147 being sold that i will not be using (cheap) nothing too small ask what you want , willing to post world wide Phone 07922123242 Ask for Neil and say Mark said to phone .

with polyester paint you have to clear straight away on the base coat , if you do have imperfections you need to recoat the base again before clear coat . but you can flatten the 2k clear coat to perfect it
