Are you wondering what types of autobody sand paper you need for your project?
When first starting out with auto body and paint and automotive customization, you may be a little confused of the many varieties of sand papers to choose from.
Here are the most common papers used today for auto body shaping, refining and finishing purposes.
We'll start with the most common 80 grit sand paper. With 80 grit paper you can use it for shaping your first coat of bondo, don't get me wrong, you also have the option to use the notorious 36 grit paper that cuts like a shark... but in my opinion, it's just not necessary because if you lay your bondo on thin and correctly you won't need to sand much off anyway.
After shaping with 80 grit, I like to move up to a 150 -- 220 grit paper to take out those coarse 80 grit sand scratches. And no, you don't want to prime over 80 grit paper.
Getting your work area down to a 150-220 will set your stage for primer or a guide coat. I just use my primer as my guide coat (more about this in the VIP course).
