sanding with TWENTY grit? want to put extra holes in it or something?

Have em sandblasted/ beadblasted, shoot em with epoxy and then paint to is good

I had to sand off all the old clearcoat on my rims and polish out some road rash. After 3 days and only stumps left of my fingers before I got it right; I said never again, I'll pay for the bead blasting.
