Did you polish after the wet sanding? How long did you let the 2x cure before sanding and polishing?

Doing the same color on my old Teisco. Went into Lowes to get Seafoam Green and saw this. Back in "63 I saw a P-Bass, Jazzmaster and Tele in the window, all this color with gold plated hardware.
Here is mine after 2 coats of primer and 3 coats of Coral. Should I sand down to 2000 and clear coat it or use swirl remover and polish it? I see suggestions for both ways

Great job on that finish! Love the color. Since we are sharing Rustoleum finishes, here is Satin Aqua (Daphne Blue).

Sorry to resurrect and old thread. I really like the color surfoverb got and was looking to duplicate it on an old beater strat I have. Yours looks a good deal pinker... which is a cool color for that bass! Just not what I'm going for. Are you both using the same Rustoleum 2x Coral gloss? If so, what could explain the difference between the lighter pink color and the darker redder color?
Thanks!
