    Sometimes the old fashioned way of hand sanding is the best choice.

    Mike, sorry if it has been answered already but do you have an article of dry-sanding versus wet-sanding? When's the appropriate time and place to use either one?

    I don't because in the past I have not been a huge fan of dry sanding not because it doesn't work well but for safety reasons and the dust it creates. Papers and discs tend to load up easier and faster and this uses up your paper and discs faster. $$$


    Check the forum tomorrow though and see what I post...

    I don't have an article at this time on dry sanding but I'll have one soon enough.

    There are benefits to both dry sanding and wet sanding, which I'll outline in the article. Dry sanding works great and makes it very easy to see your progress when removing defects like dirt in paint or orange peel, the thing to remember though is to always wear a respirator if you're going to do a lot of dry sanding, like sanding down an entire car, for health reasons.

    It also makes a lot of dust so just be prepared for the dust issue. Wetsanding is also messy but the dust is trapped in your sanding water and ends up on the floor, not all over the place or in your lungs.


    I'm really excited about the new flexible 3M Hookit Sheets although I wish they went to a higher grit level than #1500. There's probably a reason for this besides #3000 and #5000 are available in Trizact sanding discs although you can use the Trizact sanding discs by machine AND by hand.


    Check this out...

    Here you can see the orange peel being removed as you look towards the bottom of the picture the orange peel is being removed leaving behind a very flat surface that after compounding and polishing will produce a smooth, high gloss finish with excellent Distinction of Image or DOI.

    Very in-depth. So in-depth that I'm proven right every time I teach the art of wetsanding.

    What am I right about?


    After a person learns how involved it is to wetsand a car from start to finish, (not just a spot but an entire car), without making a mistake, they tend to never want to do it again.

    Impressive what you can do in ~8 minutes!

    I simply love watching your time lapses, I end up more tired watching than you doing this marvelous, show car work. How is it possible?!

    Sorry if this sound cliche, You're the MAN!

    Thanks for one more lesson.

    Kind Regards.
