Eric Kafrawy: I use 3000 as well. It saves on polishing and compounding materials big
time. 2000 will look just as good, but will require a lot more buffing time
g johan: I am from Europe painted my car for first time turned out really good, I
was watching Eastwood series and they talked about 3000 grit sanding I
thought is that necessary! I wet sanding some imperfections right now and I
was ready to order 3000 grit, but now you saved me time and money because I
believed that 2000 grit is enough and when I saw this video I will go for
the 2000 grit.
By the way ordered your video series.
markromiro619: I have a buddy who did his car on 120 grit then 320 that was good enought
for the primer im trying to paint my mustang but i still dont know what
grit to use
George Hart: so color sanding is the final sanding of what the clear coat, or the base
color, sorry, its seemingly somewhat confusing.
dj red hare aus: is there a torrent for that free dvd
UndercoverRAT RAT: Thanks for the tips

julian reyes: CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME HOW CAN I OR IF IS POSIBLE TO SAND A SINGLE STAGE
George Hart: not only is the info fantastic, but the presentation is great. Good work,
keep it coming!
Tom Ross: Tony, Great information! Thank you
tgs989: Very easy to understand video. I have a friend painting my Harley fenders
and he is blaming the Hot Rod paint I bought over the internet ,however all
the runs, sags, orange peels & filler bleed through that happened twice
after painting my fenders I feel he is a not very good at painting but he
sure can talk crap about the Hot Rod Satin paint I bought over the
internet! I decided to educate myself on painting VS taking a Idiots word.
Thanks for the videos-Tim in MI
Sundown798: Hey man been doing this stuff since the early 90's. Of course you know
their are variables from old single stage paints from the 70's, 80's ect
that need extra care depending what the condition is, to todays modern
paint systems. It all depends what condition the paint is if it is a rehab.
But new modern paint tech I can see your point. The Euro guy may of been
using some weird paint made in Iceland who knows.
Ryan Hamilton: Man, I love your videos. I'm just getting started. Do you sand at all
before clear coat?
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: No prob!!
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: Thanks Daniel!!
stay GOLDen: dude i wet sanded half of my hood on a old honda civic with 2000 and the
other half with 3000 and i saw no differance at all.. at first i thought
3000 was a huge differance.. it just looks shiny and the same..
samsonsamsonsamson hin: i personally use 3000 over 2000 when buffing dark colour, finish off with
2000, you may still see it.
Daniel Gonzalez: Amazing video Thank you!
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: Awesome, glad you liked it!!
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: YES! go to the site and download your 85 page autobody manual!
zippy308: Tony- Do you ever sand the paint before you spray your clear coat? I would
think that any imperfections would be magnified by the clear coat. Thanks
cooksey187: I only use 1200..so if u go up to 1500 and maybe 2000 will buffin be easyer
and will the shine cum out quicker?
steve quintana: Glad to see your posting new videos up tony. I got your 85 page ebook and
definitely has a lo
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: Thanks! 2000 grit to 2500, then buff! We have videos on the site:
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: No problem!!
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: lol no biggie!
MakkeMahoton: Thanks for great vid.. I wouldn't say over 2000 is overkill.. Yes you can
buff it as fine after 2000.. But it takes less time, materials and mess
when you wetsand the surface finer grit 3000 or even 4000.. It's also
easier to control d/a or block than buffer.. Like edges and hard to reach
spots you may burn trough or have to hand do the tricky bits.. Whatever
works for whom..=)
wHoA: Good information in this vid but I have 1 question please! Can I color sand
and buff a spray painted automotive panel that does not have clear coat on
it? Only was prepped, primed, and color spray covered? Thanks for the help
with this dilemma that I can't find the answer to!
Photolight PhotoLight: Outstanding Tony, wish you success.
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: I totally understand where you're coming from. A lot of guys buff over
1500. This is why I like to take it down to 2000 before I buff. I've tried
2500-3000 in the past and haven't really noticed a huge difference in time
to buff out. Through my years of experience 2000 works well for me. For
those of you out there who want's to take it down to 3000, feel free :)
lorollinls: Thanks for all of the good recent videos!
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: 2000. I have a complete blog on this. You should really browse
learnautobodyandpaint(.com) to learn a hell of a lot more!
SP330Y: I always go to 3000, it cuts down on the buffing time by about 50%. I use
3M Trizact 3000 discs, there like made out of foam or it feels like it.
Maybe 3000 wont make a massive difference to finish but it does cut down
dramatically on buffing time. I always go after base coat lacquer, 800,
1200, 2000, then 3M 3000 trizact discs and it looks astonishing, perfect
mirror reflecion. Nearly forgot after 3000 i use Farecla G6, then straight
to the Farecla glaze, then wax it, looks floorless.
Robert Guzman: Can you talk about interface sanding ,foam pad and how to use it.
Bryan2634: I'm 18 about to goto college for auto body collision repair and I've
already worked in 3 different shops and done a lot of jobs myself outside
of work. I really want to buy your VIP deal but I'm I have to sag money
haha. I want to own my own shop one day.
steve quintana: T of useful information. Sorry my computer apparently got too excited and
had to send the message early haha.
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: You use the foam pad and glaze to buff it out. I show you exactly how to do
this on video. Check out more awesome content on
learnautobodyandpaint(.com) see you there!!
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: The only thing that's really a problem is not buffing out 2000, but buffing
out the swirl marks.
LBCvalenz562: how much would a shop charge for this?
samsonsamsonsamson hin: how do you deal with the swirl marks?
david m: good vids man.hey what grid of paper would u recommend to just get an old
car with original paint to wet sand n buff just to get it looking a little
better?its my work car but i want to practice on it the paint in not shiny
just a grey old paint.its n old 88 car.
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: If you have imperfections you can sand the base coat and clear it. But it's
best to re base over your sanded areas. It's best to clear directly over
freshly painted base.
Official How To Paint a Car - DIY Learn Auto Body And Paint Training Site: thanks buddy!
Babeandme1996: what should i do when i want to paint my jeep 1979 metal but idk where to
start? any tips ?

had Extraordinary results buffing over 2000, even on black paint.
