Re: Different grits

Thanks Brent and screenman. I have another couple questions. I tried doing some headlights and some of the cloudiness didn't come off. I'm assuming then I should have dropped to the 180 grit and started again. This was the first time I used the kit. I also found the rotary sander slowed significantl...

Different grits

I'm just starting out, and have a question about the various grits of sanding discs. The typical restoration uses 320, 600, and 1500 grits. Is there any guide as to when the 180, 500, 800 and 1200 grits would be used, or is it just trial and error?

Re: New Business

Thanks Brent. Received my kit yesterday. I hope you don't mind the continuous questions. Another one: Some headlights have tight corners that the 3" sanding disc won't reach. Do you just take a sanding disc to those corners manually (i.e. folding it and using with your fingers)? I'll look into getti...

Re: New Business

$59 seems very low for a retail price to me but you might run specials at that price from time to time. Every market and business model is a little different so I never try to tell someone else what to charge but start to finish with drive time you are going to have at at least an hour into each jo...

New Business

I'm just starting out, and these posts are very helpful! I'm hoping to go to the car...to people's homes and places of business. Any suggestions on what to charge? I did a Survey Monkey and came up with $59, but now I'm thinking that is way too low, especially given the cost of the kit.
