wetsanding is not aat all like clay bar, wetsanding is taking a very fine grit sandpaper and using water and basically sanding the clear coat down, you do this because it gets rid of any imperfections in the clear coat.

wax it, you're only taking off a very fine layer of the clear coat, just getting rid of surfaces scratches or imperfections

a buddy of mine wet sanded the hood of his blazer and after a couple of months the paint faded really fast and now the paint's really dull on the hood (02 blazer) did he just do it wrong? i'm just a little worried about having this happen to my whole car! if not i'm very interested in a wetsand/wax

if it was OEM paint I doubt he did it right. has he waxed and polished it since? if not thats why too. you need to do a really good buffing and proper wax with the proper compounds when your done wetsanding.

i think its just the weather. As soon as the sun comes out I already made a mental note 2 get both cars done. Im the worst detailer, my car has more swirls then a cloud. Anyways, wanna do the expedition on friday if its sunny?
