Today I started sanding the car. Using 320grit wet sandpaper I sanded the entire hood until smooth to the the touch. I haven't gone over with 600 grit yet. I am going to do all the panels than need 320 grit first. If you look at the pictures you will see that there are rock chips all over the front... even waaay up the hood. There is not rust and they are not down to the metal (only primer) but I was wondering what I needed to do with them. There are quite a few. On to the pics. This is the trunk. I had a question about what to do about the paint flaking off but did a search and figured out I need to go to bare metal on the panel. (to do it right ;-) ) Anyway. It's not extremely difficult. Arms a bit tired and there's no need to hit the gym that's for sure. I was wondering if I needed to do 320grit on the entire car or only the panels with the clearcoat problem. Do I do 600 grit on the rest of the car? Also, at the pawn shop I saw a black and decker sander/polisher for 40 bucks (electrical) Is it worth it to grab it or will by-hand be better? Advice, comments VERY welcome.
