    Hi all,

    I am needing to lightly sand a couple of gloss doors for them to be re-painted.

    What type and grade of paper should I be using?

    When i last did it i used a black waterproof type but cant remember if i am honest.

    What type of gloss paint is currently on the doors ? Water or oil based

    If water based, yep it’s weird stuff to sand and tends to peel more than actually sand. Wet and dry paper works well with water based paint. From your description above, sounds like you may have used this before

    If oil based, then regular sandpaper, loads of brands out there, just dont bother with rubbish pound shop junk

    Grade wise, P120 then a quick flick over with 180 will do you
