This past Saturday we had a great Intro to Wet Sanding & Rotary Polishing Class. We had a mix of auto detailers, body shop technicians, and enthusiasts.

After the classroom portion of the class, we first started with a hand sanding demonstration.

Below is the first motion we will be sanding in

Next is an example of the next motion we will be sanding in. This is called a "cross cut" or "cross hatch".

Very tight, overlapping passes.

Nice & evenly sanded section

This is an example of a section which was not evenly sanded. This is a result of too wide of overlaps.

Next we cross cut.

Now on to DA Sanding.

Looks a bit different? DA Sanding is much more even.

Thank you again for the hospitality guys. Maybe I should've gone to the lecture because on Monday I sanded the paint off the corner edges on my rear hatch. haha What were you guys saying again about the edges? The rest of the hatch looked great after M105!
