IMG_1288 IMG_1290 IMG_1289 IMG_1291 IMG_1292 IMG_1295 IMG_1300 IMG_1299 IMG_1296We spent all afternoon wet sanding and buffing the Mustang. We started by blocking the clear coat with 1000 grit sand paper. This assures that the paint is as smooth and flat as possible. Next we switch to 2000 grit paper, then we do a final sanding with 3000 grit on the DA sander. That makes buffing the paint back up to a shine much easier and faster. With buffing, we use a three step process as well. First we start with a heavy cut compound with a white pad. This step is the step that removes all of the sanding scratches.  Next we switch to a grey buffing glaze with a black pad. This step removes the light buffing swirls from the first buffing step. Lastly we go over the panels with a blue pad and blue polishing glaze. Yes, its a bunch of steps and it takes quite a bit of time, but the results are worth it.

 

Hahaha  good one Chase! Now we can say you helped!!
