Hell-ov-a job man. What grit paper you gonna use to wet sand. I remember on a black car I painted I used 2000 grit paper took all day to finish. Do you have to wet sand a car with the minimal amount of orange peel? I really hate wet sanding and wish I could aviod doing it.

well since its mostly just dust nibs and minor orange peel, ill sand with my 6" DA sander with 1500grit, then had sand with 2500set, then back to the DA with 3000wet.
then a quick polish and im good to go
