Blocking clear before spraying more clear.

Following the perfect paint job I have sprayed 4 coats of universal clear and let cure for a LONG time. Now I’m planning on sanding with 400-600 grit and reapplying clear.
My question is what pattern should I be using when blocking the clear with these grits to get flat? Crosshatch at a 45, straight front to back of the panel, or something else?
Thanks.

With those grits it won't matter that much, just be sure to use long strokes.
Don't do short back and forth ones.
I like 45 degree cross hatch but it depends on the curve of the panel you gotta
go with the flow!:)

What about after the final clear application? Technique the same for cut and buff sanding?
