After wet sanding and rinsing off the panel, what is recommended to remove the film left behind. Is this where tack cloth and mineral spirits come in?

No tack cloth. No mineral spirits.

Wash with soap and water and NEW sponge. I use Dawn dishwashing soap. I never wet sand before paint, though, as there are problems that can come up when you paint. I thought we addressed that in another thread.

Good luck

Mark

I wasn't satisfied with the finnish after We used the 180 grit on the smc filler and other pannel repairs, so I used 400 grit wet/dry on the areas to remove the little swirls and imperfections.
This is our first attempt at any body work so please bear with us.
So the consensious is dish soap and clean sponges vs. mineral spirits and tack cloths...

Thanks,

You can dry sand with 400 too. even up to 800. I wash with Dawn soap first, dry and then dry sand and just towel with paper towels and blower after. I use paper towels because every one you pull off is virgin with no other contaminents to add. When dry sanding too, I always let my hands stay dusty with the residue until im done. That way nothing like sweat or body oil is transfered to the surface. Some sand with latex gloves.
