abralon or trizac sanding pad question

How many 2000 and 4000 sanding pads would it take to do a complete 1979 chevy scottsdale pickup? I have never used them before and dont think i would be able to tell when there wore out or not!!! Any info on this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I use the Abralon 4000 pads, but only after sanding with 2000.
Doing it that way, they go a long way.
I would guess 4 to 5 pads for a truck would be more than enough.
I can do a couple of hoods with one. You can use them a lot longer
but they just start slowing down, so it's how patient you are.

To answer the Trizact part. 1 pad is supposed to do 1 entire vehicle.
I usually end up using 2 as I want more consistancy and IMO one will wear out before your finished.Key is keeping them wet,not soaked as they will hydroplane with too much water,running them dry will wear them out fast. They will last longer than the Abralon pads but problem is,you have to buy a box of 25 Trizacts and I don't know about the Abralons. I bought a box of them cheap cause the jobber was discontinuing the line so JC will have to answer that for ya.
