1000 grit scratches

Hey fellas I finnally painted my truck with the John Deere Blitz Black and I was pretty happy with it. But the finish had some rough feeling spots in it and someone on another board suggested wet sanding it, so I did. It is much better now, but I sanded through in some spots (mostly edges) where it was thin. Is it okay to just paint over these spots or should I rough them up some more with the 320 again then paint them. Thanks for the help!

If you are sanding around the edges of you body lines you should put some tape in those areas so you don't sand them down to bare metal..

Did you paint your truck with a paint gun or JD rattle cans?

I used a cheap conventional type Campbell Hausfeld gun from Wal-Mart, and my 1.5 horsepower 3.7 cfm at 40 psi craftsman compressor. The compressor kept up just fine, it came on but the psi in the tank never dropped below 100 psi while i was painting (according to the gauge on the tank). While I pulled the trigger on the gun I set the regulator to 40 psi. I have to say it turned out way better than any rattle can stuff I have used in the past. Except for the few rough feeling spots I had to sand out. I only have a few spots that I went through while sanding. I'm not going for a great paint job just a decent one.

Yeah the paint should go over then 1000 grit scratches just fine, just make sure to use something finer when it's time to buff
