  • Wet sanding

    I have finally got around to start playing with my Camaro a bit the other day. I have had clear coat issues on my two back fenders that have been driving me nuts for the last year.

    I was at the point where I may need to paint it to repair it, so I tried a last ditch resort of wet sanding it.

    The outcome went from this:

    Clear coat hazing

    To it now looks like this...


    Wet sanding


    One small area seemed to have no clear coat as it bled off orange as I lightly sanded there. I can see it was the area I had repaired when I first bought it. Plan to touch up a few more spots before I hit it with some rubbing and polishing compound.

        I never had any luck doing wet sanding. What grades are you using.

          I just used 2000grit wet sand paper. I need to now use a running compound to remove the scratches and get the shine coming back. Then step down to a polishing compound, until I work my way up to waxing it
