I have no qualms about wet sanding metallics. If the paint is put on uniform, it will be the same all the way through. Now if you had a metallic slide in a previous coat, you would want to be careful not to sand into that coat, but otherwise.......

Even under perfect conditions with paint applied perfectly sanding a metallic SS and buffing it is asking for trouble as it WILL show blotches of metallic every time depending on how much you sand. Sure, I quick "nib" of dust you can pull it off but if you cut any more than just a nib, you are going to cut into the layers of metallic.
