wetsanding

I wet sanded recently with 2,500 grit and 3,000 grit. Remember, you should only see a white milky residue. There should be NO paint color on the paper or in the water. I followed it up with turtle wax polishing compound. DO NOT use rubbing compound or you will have more work to do. I polished and polished until the result was nearly as good as the part I didn't sand. Once at that point, I finished it off with carnuba wax. Here are the pics.
