Could someone tell me,
What causes the "Orange Peel Effect"?
Paint applied too thick?
Spraying too close to target? or too far away?
Wrong air temperature?
Not enough time between coats?

I have some Morette rear lights which need painting and I don't want to mess them up, or should I just take them to a body shop and let the Pro's paint them

just take your time when you are doing it. Also, you could wet sand with a high grade paper.

ya, i had a alittle bit of orange peeling on my interior painting. had to redo one of the door handle inserts. just make sure to really sand down and CLEAN the piece, then take your time, really let it dry inbetween coats, and wet sand it between every other coat or so. make sure to really, REALLY give the clear coat a long time to dry. longer than the paint. =)
