Finished some cabinets in my shop with catalyzed lacquer. Came out great but have a few doors that have a little something I can feel when I run my hand over them. Maybe a little over spray or something.
My go to trick is a brown paper bag. I've heard that it has an abrasive equivalency of 2000 grit.
Give the CV about 1 hour to dry and give it a good rub on the areas that are a bit rough. It's better to do it earlier. Even if you don't get it glass smooth after it cures and stretches it will get smoother.
I like to use the lunch bag paper bags.
If it's lacquer, why not just scuff with an abrasive sponge and re coat?
Try fogging on some Lacquer Thinner with a tad bit of retarder in it. That will melt in the over spray without leaving a sheen difference that the burnishing may leave.
Another option to using a paper bag is a piece of Wax Paper.
A "clay bar" that's used for cars works
Worn out high flex sponge pad.
Irrespective of over-spray or not, I use a cotton cloth slightly damp, with a tiny amount of automotive rubbing compound (1500 and using too much will leave some in the pores). A quick rub down taking almost no time leaves the finish smooth and improves the look.
