Dead is right...I use my 16 1/2 by 2 3/4 inch long board more than any other tool for getting a car straight...with the sheet roll system you can get any grit you want for body work or finish sanding in dry paper. I don't know about you dead but I haven't used my air board since I stopped working flat rate, even then I trusted my long hand board more, a lot lighter so less pressure on the panel and no noise to speak of.
