Where do you recommend buying sand paper in bulk for cheap? I reckon I would need some 220 for a D/A (I'm gonna go buy me an air powered D/A), and some 400 and 600 for wet sanding.
I think I am going to get the gas tank, hood, and front cowl and bring it home with me and work on it during the week so "no time is lost" that way it'll look better and be done "right". I work full time during the week 100 miles away from the tractor, so when I'm doing tractor work, I only have 2 days on the weekend to do it. It's around 80-85 degrees this week and hopefully it'll hold out next week.
We've got a Farmall Super A that we've almost got ready to paint so it'll be next!!

I usually buy mine from my local BASF jobber. The 3M red D.A. paper isn't bad for the price. It's not as good as their gold line but it's half the price. I usually stick to either 3M or Norton,and Carborundum Abrasives makes some decent paper,but they also make some really cheap white looking sandpaper and avoid it at all costs. I have found that going with cheaper paper doesn't really save anything when you have to change the paper twice as often as the good brands. A couple of years back I switched to using a 3M interface pad on my D.A. The paper for them uses Velcro to hold it on the pad and it has a foam interface pad that goes between the DA pad and the sandpaper so you can sand curves without digging it up and making flat spots. Also the paper for them has holes in it and allows the dust to go up thru the pad and not clog your sandpaper, and because of the Velcro you can switch paper back and forth all you want and reuse it unlike adhesive backed where it usually won't stick again after its been stuck to the pad once.
