Yo corey…. I was just curious what grits you sand and buff.. I 1000 grit by hand, with a soft block, then 1500 same way and start buffing… I’ve heard of guys buffing out 1200… Just curious.. 😎
Gates are about done… fun fun.. so many lines!!! soooo many chances of buffing through… 😎FranzKeymasterMay 8, 2019 at 10:24 amPost count: 2400
Shit, I’ve heard about guys wet sanding to 4000 before buffing. Seems crazy to spend so much time on something so temporary.C.HamburgParticipantMay 8, 2019 at 6:13 pmPost count: 128

Generally I don’t buff shit. if that’s what someone wants I try to not do the job. I paint in a garage lol
But if I absolutely have to I do the dirt nibs with 1000 then do an all over 1500. i did buy a 3″ DA with an assortment of wet grits. also have 1000 and 1500 for 6″ used to use trizact 3000 at the bodyshop. depending on how hard the paint is I’ll go with a wool pad, but usually just a white waffle then the black.
Gates suck I wouldn’t sand anything you cant get your buffer on burn through city on those edges.John JonesKeymasterMay 10, 2019 at 8:04 amPost count: 4786

Love the progress. All the sanding and burn through talk makes me so nervous considering how nice the paint job is/was. The Crew Cab is going to look so good!C.HamburgParticipantMay 10, 2019 at 7:18 pmPost count: 128
Don’t stress man. John’s one of the best. I try and talk people out of buffing at all costs lol only fix to a burn through it a repaint.68tintopParticipantMay 11, 2019 at 6:49 amPost count: 546

We got a lot of stuff..!!!!. I might have to work extra hard this weekend on this buffing….. Would be nice to be pulling a wiring harness in on monday!!!!! 😎 we got those backing plates so we can paint those and get it ready for trans assy…
I went to town on sanding this… it’s going to be NICE…. 😎 I went and bought my arsenal of stuff yesterday for the first two steps… 😎 I dunno about that machine glaze stuff… Makes only a couple percent better change… and that blue stuff…pufffffff just makes it slick… 😎
I will be buffing in no time.. Only a little left to sand on back of truck… 😎
