Here is a crappy cell phone pic of one of the rims I was sanding today, it had tiny little nicks all around as if it were used as a cymball, they all disappeared without taking but a tiny bit off.
awesome , thanks for the info itll be a big help. i actually ended up buying 80 & 120 lol. its nice n sanded now but i haven't primed yet . its too cold in this pos state and i dont have garage access right now ( cousins truck is dead and in pieces in there ) so im just takin my time on these lol. i hate having the stuff for the car sitting in my basement and NOT ON THE CAR !!!
