birdszed: Hi, I've been watching a few of your videos trying to learn little bits and bobs. Anyway, I went to your website and signed up for the news letter etc but I never got the 85 page free guide which was promised. Anyway I can get this?
houa vang: its possible to polish after 2000 grit but i believe that for a newbie, its better to go 3000 grit because most likely a newbie will not be that comfortable with a machine and they could burn through the paint trying to buff out 2000 grit.
Gli_Fahrenheit: I was sanding the orange peel on my repainted hood and i accidentally applied too much pressure and left some scratches. i used 1500 and 2500 grit with wet sanding but can i re-sand the hood again with 2500 to try to remove some of the left over scratches? im scared of eating up the clearcoat, or would i be fine with just a light sand ?

Peter Walker: Excellent information thank you!
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

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.
