I'd smoke the stockers and candy the euros .. but that's me.

Since they are already smooth, you don't need any rough paper .. 400 and 600 should be fine.

:word: 400 and 600 grit will do the trick. The first time i did my tails i had to start off with 60 grit...but if u know how the reverse lense on 73-87 tails is, you would understand. If you have any really rough spots, hit them 200 grit or so, but 400 and 600 should do the trick. I also agree with bcubed, tint the stockers too, and candy the euros...tint them some too if u want them to be a bit fancy...lol

I used 220 to sand the dot #'s and crap off, and after I sprayed used 600 Wet :D
Yeah, might as well get the DOT and stuff off of there...I forgot they were on there...the only thing i really remember sanding was the reverse lense on mine...lol
