Should I use something with the paper or just my fingers? I am wet sanding before paint. Going to use 400 grit wet/dry.

Thanks,

yes, use a block-cpntour with hand and fingers.
Avoid straight line sanding, circles are best.

And watch edges, do those with fingers either side of the edge so you don't burn through the paint.

We use what's reffered to as a "Sponge Pad". You can get different types (thicknesses, densities) at your local autobody supply. Use the denser ones on the flat surfaces, & the soft ones in the curved areas.

I was always to to NEVER sand with hands. Uneven pressure and the organic form of your hand creates uneven sanding. I may be wrong though, most of the stuff I have learned about paint/prep comes from TV shows or hear-say, but this makes sense to me.
