haha well unless I'm reading it wrong it wasn't clear in the original post. In the original instructions he says he sands his final coat. But in his reply to me he says he doesn't sand the final coat.

Basically to rehash. Is the last coat of color sanded or just painted? And, is the last coat of clear coat sanded or not?
Good questions. I definately sand the last coat of base, usually with 1000. I typically sand between clear coats with 1000, then 2000. The last coat of clear is a light one and I don't sand. This is done so I don't have to use rubbing compound and buff them. It's good enough for me, but there is always that extra step you can take to make things better.
He answered you on the last page... I'm just sayin... :stuart:
