    I don't even know what happened. Here's another try.

    Question is, is it safe to use 80 and are those deeper scratches not a big deal?
    Big difference from 80 to 150 in the fury of that sandpaper.

    Thanks! I also got the wire drill attachment kit. The main concern is that all that gunky junk paint on the inner side of the tanks (where they butt up against each other) flakes up and affects the integrity of the paint all around.

    80 is totally ok, I’ll rough in bodywork as low as 40 grit at times. I’ve always stuck with these grits throughout the few decades I’ve done bodywork at the shop prior to paint application,

    40-80 rough
    120 high spots
    180-220 finish

    Thank you! So helpful. It honestly worked so fast I was afraid I'd dig a facet into it. Gotta move fast!

    Again, it's about having a hand in it, not just paying it to get done. I'm happy to let the pros do their thing, but I want to be able to work on something that isn't just finding parts/labor and paying for them.

    I appreciate all the input as always. Let's see how far we get...

    You mean to see the work once you get to 180 or above?

    Yes, you got it.

    This is more for a molded frame or tank, where I will have a basic shape and want to throw some primer on there to see where the high or low spots are. Once everything is in one shade of primer it looks a lot different and is easier to pick out areas that don't look quite right.

    Thanks for the throwback Drags, those were good nails!

    I think I was thinking there was a lot more bondo than there actually is... feeling not so bad about it.

    Try to keep in mind where that bondo is as you will probably be putting some on in those spots yourself.

    Haha yeah! Gnar gnar.
    My plan was to crumple it off then wire brush, but the flying flakes are super burny so I think I'm waiting for it to dry out a bit before I chip away.

    Goggles don't protect the face (and I find them annoying) so I collect shields in my travels. Beats a wire strand bath (Dremel brushes especially but any stranded brush throws strands) or other fragments to the face and is comfy in warm weather. Fits over glasses of course. Jackson make nice ones and your local welding supply will normally have a selection in stock so ya can choose the headgear most comfy for you then buy clear (or tinted) shields. I always get multiple clears.

    Another comfortable way to wear them is (the supplied headgear is decent) is the flip-up holders that attach to hard hats which besides being stable keep stuff out of yer hair.
