Cross-sand between every grit. Manually turn the lathe while sanding lengthwise. Spend more time on that than you did with the lathe running each grit. Do the same with the micromesh if your finish can handle being worked that hard. Finish the final polish with automotive wax or an ultra-fine buffing compound. I use Simoniz Vista liquid auto wax on all of mine. 3 or 4 coats usually does it.
