33Willeys77 is correct, start of with either 600 or 800 wet with a hard block...apply no pressure on the block at all, let the paper cut the run. When the runs are knocked out of the clear, graduate up tosay 800 then 1,000 1,500, 2,000 and I prefer to finish my clear with 2,500 grit before polishing. If you sand through the clear coat, it needs be re based, especially if it's a metallic color.

Hope this helps
