    In theory start lower at 1000 and work your way up to as high as possible, typically 3000 wet and dry.

    You should then be able to polish it to a high shine with a rotary polisher if you wanted.

    I stripped the frame back i’m using for my GF’s new (old) bike, whilst i’m waiting for some new decals to arrive i want to work on a nice shiny finish.
    What’s the sort of grit level i should be looking at to get a good finish? (not fussed about perfect mirror shine)
    1000? 1500? 2000?

    It’s currently a bit dull with a fair few wire wool marks
