The question is how much orange peel do you have. If you have little then 600 or 800 grit is good. If you have a lot of op then I would use 400. Anything courser will gouge your paint and then you will not be happy in the end. Remember your building thickness, your final sand will get you flatness. Hope this helps.

i dont have to much so im just going to try 650 wet then start from there with 2 coats, wet with 800 then 2 coats, and final sand with wet 1500, but then do i polish it or buff first, and if polish can i apply by hand then just buy a buffer and it will be done? Thanx and those are my only ?

Once you're done wet sanding then you will "cut" your paint. What this means is that you will use a buffer with a cutting pad, cutting compound. This will get rid of fine scratches and bring up the shine. Next you will "buff or polish" the car using your buffer a polishing pad and polishing compound. This will really bring out the shine. You will never do it by hand. This paint is just to soft to hand rub. Check out my 63 falcon in the project section. This will give you step by step help.
What kind of car are you painting?
