Book Sample Below:
Sandpaper is rated based on its coarseness. Low numbers are the coarsest while
the higher numbers are much finer. You can get sandpaper starting from 36-grit to rough up
body filler to 2,000 grit for final wet sanding. Sheets of sandpaper can be bought that measure
a foot square for you to cut or fold depending on your needs. Make sure you purchase enough
sandpaper to complete the job. One sheet is often not enough for more than one small general repair.
You may not be aware of the multitude of various types of sandpaper products available on the market.
The choice used to be between open coats or wet and dry sandpaper. Now you will also find various
backings and shapes to use on various sanding tools.
Sanding Blocks and Boards
A sanding block or board works best to give you a flat, even sand. Choosing to use only your hand
will result in low spots or grooves because of the irregular shape of your hand. Sanding blocks and
boards, because of their flat and rigid base will allow the same amount of pressure to be dispersed
across the sanding surface.
You will find sanding blocks and boards for sale at auto body paint and supply stores as well as
most auto parts stores. It’s important to remember to make sure the sanding block and the body panel
shape are compatible. You may need to use a variety of sanding tools to achieve this so use whatever
you can to help you attain a smooth finish.
A Sanding machine will consist of a pneumatic or an electric hand sander. You don’t always need to
use one, especially if you are working on a small job. A sanding machine will significantly reduce the
amount of time you spend on this particular task if you are going to be painting the entire vehicle or if
the vehicle has undergone some body repair. Make sure you know how to operate it; a sanding machine
will unnecessarily damage a vehicle if it’s being operated by an inexperienced person.
To you and Auto Body And Paint!
