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 and materials.
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
dj red hare aus: is there a torrent for that free dvd

julian reyes: CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME HOW CAN I OR IF IS POSIBLE TO SAND A SINGLE STAGE PAINT PLEASE!!
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
Ryan Hamilton: Man, I love your videos. I'm just getting started. Do you sand at all before clear coat?
Tom Ross: Tony, Great information! Thank you
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.
Robert Guzman: Can you talk about interface sanding ,foam pad and how to use it.

Babeandme1996: what should i do when i want to paint my jeep 1979 metal but idk where to start? any tips ?
LBCvalenz562: how much would a shop charge for this?
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.
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: learnautobodyandpaint(.com)
