If you happen to catch and edge, or are not careful you will gouge into your just sanded finish. To me, its fine for small parts. But I would not want to sand an entire car coated in the stuff....way to much paper and time.
Interesting.....That was not my experience at all. It sprayed well and sanded easily without clogging my paper. I probably did 6 or 7 rounds of block sanding in all, as well as a lot of bodywork (filler, mostly). Maybe it is just because I don't have a lot to compare it to. As I said, I'm strictly an amateur....
