Slick as glass

2013.03.26 - Mustang (1) 2013.03.26 - Mustang (2) 2013.03.26 - Mustang (3)Back in the saddle! Today we were able to get this left door wet sanded and buffed in between our collision work and the Adam 12 car. This Mustang is getting our High Performance Finish so we go the extra mile to make sure the gloss is as good as can be. First we block sanded the door with 1000 grit paper to flatten out all of the orange peel. This process makes the panel flat as can be so the reflection will be sharp and crisp. Next we sanded the panel with 200o grit paper. This step is to smooth out the 1000 grit scratches to speed up the buffing process. The last step is to go over the panel with 3000 grit paper on a DA sander for the only purpose of making the buffing steps quicker. Buffing starts with a heavy cutting compound to quickly remove the sanding scratches. The next step is to buff the panel with a milder compound to remove the buffing scratches in the first step. Lastly we do a super fine buffing to ensure their are no swirl marks left in the panel at all from the buffer. As you can see from the pictures it came out pretty slick.
