We all like it when our automobiles is clean and bright. However, if you don't do it correctly, you risk damaging your automobile. Collisions, windblown shopping carts, bad weather, a motor vehicle can experience surface damage in a variety of ways. Whether the result is a big dent or tiny scratches, utilising the proper sandpaper during the repair process is critical to generating superior results. You may add a shine to your car and give it a glossy finish by wet sanding it. 

What is wet sanding a car?

Wet sanding is the technique of eliminating paint blemishes from your automobile and restoring the gloss. Wet sanding can help erase the orange peel look on a new automobile. However, keep in mind that wet sanding will not remove deep marks. It can only fix scratches on the top layer of your car's paint and clear finish.

Sandpaper grit is the number of abrasive particles per square inch of sandpaper. The lower the number, the fewer abrasives present, resulting in coarser sandpaper. The higher the number, the more abrasives are present, making sandpaper finer.

HOW SHOULD YOU APPLY GRIT?

The first step is to select the appropriate grit of sandpaper. Grit numbers often vary from 40 to 4000 and higher. The rougher the sandpaper, the lower the number. The first guideline of car body repair is to use the least harsh sandpaper possible while still getting the job done. The last thing you want to do is inflict damage in the form of deep scratches, which would need more labour to remove.

40 to 80 Grit - Because this sandpaper grit is coarse and can leave noticeable marks, it is not suggested for tiny clear coat scratches or other comparable applications. It is instead advised for any hard sanding required prior to body work, as well as shaping body filler.

120 to 180 Grit - Use this grit range to smooth off scratches, feather the edges of body filler, sand spot putty, and remove light rust.

320 to 400 grit - This grit range is substantially finer than the ones discussed previously. It may be used for pre-primer sanding, rough primer sanding, spot putty fine sanding, and final body filler sanding. It is also advised to use a sanding block.

600 to 800 Grit - This grit range of sandpaper is ideal for sanding surface defects in priming prior to painting. It is advisable to begin with the lowest grit and work your way up to the highest grit.

1000 to 1200 Grit - This grit range is useful for removing base coat flaws. For optimal results, employ the wet sanding technique.

1500 to 2000 Grit - Use this grit range to smooth out surface defects and scratches before and after applying the clear coat. This will also need the use of wet sanding to avoid clogging the sandpaper.
