What sand paper grits do you use when sanding?
This step In my opinion is the secret, the most important of all the steps. The Depthness of the shine you will have will be in direct proportion to the sanding you do. So with that said… depending on how far, how much work and time you want to spend on sanding will determine how close to a perfect mirror your surface will become. Choosing the grits: 95% of my jobs are done with 320 followed by 400 and finishing with 600. Some jobs will require a bit more work and time, Older and much more pitted surfaces will need to be sanded with 120-180 grit first, I very rarely go lower then 180 on aluminum it will just create more unwanted work and loss of time to get all the marks done by the harsher grit. So 180, followed by 320, 400 and finished with 600 grit ready for the polishing step. I use a 5 inch sander but use 6 inch paper for a reason it's so when I do corners and stuff the paper folds up around the sander so I can get the edges easier with no scratching from the sander.
Do you wet sand or dry sand?
I Dry sand. There's no difference work wise aside from using water, dry imo is faster no need to keep spraying water and no need to clean up the water before you start polishing.
