    Red x's... yeah, I viewed the photos when this first was posted, but just wanted to take a look again now that I have the "same" car to work on.
    Maybe they linked to another site that no longer hosts them... they are no longer on any company's site from what I see.

    Those photos are hosted on the Meguiar's Online Photo Gallery. Meguiar's recently upgraded their vBulletin software to the newest version and since the upgrade all the photos in the first gallery are now red x's.

    I e-mailed Mike Pennington about the issue last night and I'm sure they have one of their IT guys investigating. I hope they find a fix as I have almost 4000 photos hosted on the MOL photo gallery and they are shared all over the Internet.

    What part of IL do you live in? I'm right in the middle in Normal.

    Kaleb-
    Well, I'm in Marshall, IL, so we go to Bloomington, but actually Bloomington IN, to go out for dinner, etc. since good old Terre Haute gets old pretty quickly. We do get to Champaign once in a while also.

    NICE! The images are back up. Man that's stellar - shows where to tape off the e34, what the sanding process looks like... I hope mine turns out half as good as that M5! Thanks Mike!

    I do have a bottle, but I believe I used too much soap based on what you're saying. This post is some awesome information. It's amazing the kinds of things you don't think about (like cutting sand paper into small pieces) when you get into the heat of the moment trying to remove a few RIDS.

    I've been using a form of your feathersanding when I wet sand, but not to the specific directions you provided here. I'll start using your method as it makes a ton of sense and will hopefully make removing the sanding marks and scratches a lot easier.

    Thanks for the informative post.
    Bump...in case Mike never read the above post.

    Just a drop or two for a 32 ounce spray bottle of water. You want just enough soap to provide lubrication plus anit-loading of the disc with paint particles but you don't want to create suds as you sand.

    Glad it helps....


    For everyone reading this into the future, keep in mind when I wrote this article and used this technique products like the 3M #3000 and #5000 Trizact Sanding Discs had NOT been invented yet.

    Nor had the Rupes TA50 been introduced yet.
