Alright guys, I finally got some touch-up paint from the dealership. I'm amazed at how well it actually matches the paint on my truck. I've started to gradually fill in the rock chips and a couple of scratches. With a couple of applications, I've got them built up so that I'm now ready to wet sand and buff. I read the thread about scratch repair that someone else posted before, but honestly, I'm terrified of taking sandpaper to my truck. I have looked around all the auto parts stores locally and I'm only finding 1500 and 2000 grit paper. Do I need anything finer than that or will those work? I'm guessing I start VERY lightly with the 1500 just to bring down the level of the paint and then move to the 2000 to finish the sanding. Do you sand in circles or just go with the direction of the scratch? What about for the rock chips? Is it better to use water, or would I be safer with a spray detailer for a little more lubrication? After that, will compound and orange pad on PC be the next step to remove dull look and any swirl marks? I wish I had an inconspicuous place to practice this first, but the scratches are in noticeable areas. Stupid, #%$#%$, freaking, #%$#%$, jackass, #%$#%$ people who don't care about rubbing against or bumping other people's vehicles!!!! Sorry, had to get that off my chest. Any advice you guys have that might keep me from destroying my paint would be much appreciated!!
