    Hey guys, I have a few scratches on my truck and I picked up the toyota 209 touch-up paint from the dealer the other day. The directions on the side of it are really hard to read, does anyone have any experience or know the best method for using this touch-up paint.

    What do I use to buff? I went into kragen and the guy said use 1500 wet/dry sand paper but my roommate suggested a wet sandpaper pad's. I used the 1500 sand paper lightly and it doesn't look good at all.

    He is, sweet! Tell him what up!

    It won't. That's why you wet sand and buff. The buffing part polishes the clear and helps blend everything in. Also, using sandpaper on your car should only be done by someone who knows what they are doing. It could become costly really quick.
