    Default Shooting top of fender question?

    I am going to shoot the top of a 68 Mustang fender and I don't plan of sanding through the clear, just sanding and blowing a little color and reclearing. I was wondering if 1000 grit is enough for just a little color and clear for the repair (just dust under the clear near the very front of the fender he does not like)?

    Thanks

    The ability of the color to bond to a fine scratch depends on the working characteristics of the paint. Some products grip better than others. I usually sand under the base coat with 600 then use a finer grit (like 1500) under my clear but your paint may be different.
