    And with this statement I say, I will never use poor quality sand paper , discs or bands when polishing stainless steel trim to a mirror finish and expect the same results as more expensive products.

    Sanding body work is less critical in it`s early stages then switched to higher quality more consistent grits.

    Nothing worse than seeing sanding marks under paint due to poor prep.
