    Just a reminder: When we say it is not a good idea to sand, we are saying it is not a good idea to sand for the purposes of removing orange peel....However, sanding with the appropriate grit in order to remove an isolated defect would be ok regardless of finish on a factory car as long as you are monitoring the amount of material you are removing.

    Even did the before and after with the QuaNix meter. Only removed about .2 mil overall if I remember correctly.
