So you painted a Guitar today, clear coated it and have now buffed it and it isn't shiny?

I don't think anyone will be able to help you, your problem is a serious one.

You have no PATIENCE or ability to FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS!!!

clear coat over 10 times. Let it cure very well. Buffing compound should be pretty abrasive. It helps to have a buffer, or your arms feels like it's going to fall off before you're anywhere near done. It's happened to me before..

google.com, and the ultimate painting stickie..

After finishing clear coats, you need to wait for it to cure, then LEVEL sand with ruff grits of 320 all the way through to about 2000 and THEN use polishing compound, you cant just buff it straight away.

Yes, that's what you do after clearcoating 10-15 times. That and buff like crazy.
