Stage 11: Body 3000 grit wet sand
With the aggressive 2,000 grit hand sanding stage complete, we moved to a finer grade - 3,000. The body was fully wiped down with a 50/50 mix of alcohol and water to remove all dust and clear the surface. 3M's trizact system in 3,000 grit was applied to a DA sander; speed was set at half speed. Using water for lubrication, each panel was sanded in stripes roughly 3' wide.
This stage removed all scratches from 2,000 grit and fully leveled the paint. Now, there is not a single scratch or wave in the paints surface.
