I've used 3M Hookit II 1500 discs (3M part #00750) with a Hutchins waterbug 7544 for Orange peel removal with good results. I was wondering if 3M has replaced that number to #00950 and if they make this same size disc in 2000 or 2500 grit? Thanks in advance.

00750 is Triazct and the 0950 is Finishing Film, different type of product. If you want something comparable to the 00750 you should get the 1500 Trizact (standard hook and loop) linked below. they call it "clearcoat" but it can also be used for sanding single stage.

That doesn't have the holes for the waterbug and I was wondering if it available in finer grit(with holes).

Trizact Clear Coat Sanding Disks donít need that much water. I have a wet sponge in my left hand and AirVantage in the right. Drizzle the water on enough so the sanding debris washes away but not so much that the sander floats on a thick film of water. Too much water and it doesnít cut as well.

I dip the sponge in a bucket of water every few minutes or so.

It's a waterbug. Shouldn't need a sponge. I am looking for discs in 6 inch with holes finer then 1500 grit.

So how is the Trizact used differently than Finishing Film?

Trizact is used wet and Finish Film is used dry. Itís easy to see your progress with Finish Film. You need to pull a squeegee over your work when you want to see the Trizact progress, but the extra long life of the Trizact makes it worth while.

I keep a spray bottle handy. It seems like as long as there's just a mist of water on the paint that's all I need. Occasionally I spray off the disk but with that product, pigtails are a thing of the past. I used to have to scrape the sharp points off before I used those disks but I think they're doing it at the factory now.

As far as needing paper in finer grits, I don't think that's necessary. There is trizact foam in 2000, etc. that should refine the scratch from the 1500 more than enough for removal with just about any decent polish.

Just be sure to remove all the residue from the polish when you check your work.
