easiest and fastest way is with a DA and a spray bottle 1200, 1500, 3000 trizac pads. and will buf out REAALLLL NICE :teeth::thumbsup:

just be very carefull around edges and body lines until you are real comfortable with it.

How many coats of clear you put on it?? Sanding clear with water should make it kinda foamy.. thats when you know your done with that area

doesnt necessarily mean your done, your done when you get it as flat as you want it. it will foam up way before you get all the orange peel out.. and the 3000 grit trizac pads will foam up the whole time your sanding.

he's right. just do like exclusive said and it be good just watch edges with the 1200 and 1500. the 3000 you can sand for awhile before it hurts anything 3000 is almost like a pre-buff on the 1500

i have about 3 or 4 good coats on and alright what do you mean by foamy ive heard it will look dull/ very blurry after you do it then once you buff it will turn shiny again

You couldve also put some rubbing compound on a rag and rub it around there just to make sure:thumbsup:

If you want it to turn out straight as it can be, you need to block it, not use a dual action sander. You can put all kinds of dips and waves in the body panels with a DA.

Blocking is the only way to go.

I did 4 rounds of block sanding the finish coat on my 87 Monte and she came out straight as an arrow. Of course, I had 400 hours of body time in it by the time it was all said and done lol.

I would say blocking is for primer.. thats where you want to get it straight as possible.. clear coat is not meant to fix any blocking imperfections.. and your using 1500-3000 grit paper so its not gonna dig too much if your moving it around with low air pressure

blocking is for primer??? blocking is for everything if you want the reflection like glass.( you just use a different kind of block for wet sanding clear). which is is usually for show cars AND which is why i recommended the DA ,but i guess your the pro here.. lol


listen to mr pancho..
