You are right I should have provided more details on the options for the entire corrective process. Wet sanding is critical to getting the best results if you're goal is to fully remove the orange peel. Some people just want the paint to look it's best as is and others are ambitious enough to try and fully remove orange peel. Starting off with a wet sanding and following up with a good polishing will help remove more of it but this process should be reserved for those with more time, patience and skills.

Let me know if you have any other questions or suggestions.
