Bob,
when I was painting full time back in Iowa I did alittle experimenting with the wet vs dry method.
I kept records on how long it took to sand the part, and the total time it took from final sanding to ready for paint.

Most of my sanding involved using 800 grit on a 6" dynabrade. On a blend panel I used 800 grit. I found that using the 800 grit dry was indeed faster then sanding the same part wet.
I understand that there are tons of variables that could be thrown in on that. But in my test I found dry sanding to be faster then wet.
But everyday I learn something new and always find a new way to skin that darn cat

On my primer spots I dry sanded using 320 or 400, then sealed the primer area. Never once did I see sand swelling later on. I lived in a small town of 6000 people, so I KNEW the cars that I painted, I saw them at the post office, at the gas station etc.

It all boils down IMO to personal preference. Like the classic battle of blondes vs brunettes, I like brunettes Theres nothing wrong with either...Eric

I had a fender off a car and primered last winter with 2k.
I normally wet sand them with 400 and never had a problem, even
with metallics. But it was cold outside so I brought it inside
to my shop and dry sanded it with my normal 400 paper.
I had scratches everwhere, it was a mess. I had to resand with
600 to get them out. Even that seemed more coarse.
To say wet sanding is more aggressive is just backwards from
my experience. If I dry sand I have to use a finrer grit.
At least as far as hand sanding goes.
