I dont know if this was mentioned yet. But I almost never wetsand. I sand with a finishing D/A that has a interface pad on it. I start off with 3M Hook-it finishing film the slowly work up to 3000 grit 3M Trizact Hook-it II Foam pads. After any imperfection are removed; I follow up with bringing the finishing back to a mirror shine. I start off with a extra cut fine rubbing compound with a foam pad. Then I set up to a swirl mark remover/polish on a soft black foam pad. After the paint is swirl free with a nice shine. I finish off using a high quality non silicon hand glaze. To me wet sand leaves scratches and takes to long. The process of using a DA is much faster and leaves a smoother finish.
