Can I wet sand K36?

I have been dry sanding K36 on my Mustang with 400 grit. The paper gets clogged quickly...

Can I wet sand it? Or is that a no-no?

Thanks for your time.

Why Not Block Primer Out First With 220 Or 320 Dry Then Water Sand With 400 Or 600, Trying To Dry Sand Any 2k Primer With 400 Is Almost I Said Almost Impossible, I Always Block My 2k With 22o, Then Water Paper 400 And 600, And To Answer Your Question Yes You Can Watersand K36, It Is Very Good Primer, Hope This Helps, Mike.

By all means wet sand it, that is where K36 excells IMO. I have been wet sanding first with 360, then 600 before laying on the base. Be sure and use a guide coat for blocking.

Wish I had known this! I am using 3M dry guidecoat. It is wonderful. I would not recommend using rattle can. It is horrible.

Thanks for your time.

You can still use the 3M Dry Guide Coat, just apply it before you wet the surface. Some will wash away, but enough remains that will guide you....works great.

Oh Yes By All Meens You Can Waterblock It And It Will Fall Off Like Butter, With 320 Or 360 Then Like He Said Finish Off With 600 Wet, Man The Base Will Lay Down Like Glass, So If Your Base Lays Down Slick, Then Your Clear Should Lay Down Slick , Mike.
