A buddy of mine used to work in an autoshop and has good painting experience. I've got an old race fairing that I'm going to use until I get rear seat, etc. I'm going to sand it myself to get some practice, but my problem is he told me that I needed a flexible sanding block to sand with, and I can't find one anywhere. In theory I could use a sanding sponge, but I have to have 800,1000,1500 and the highest grit I could find was 320. Does anyone have any experience sanding, and if so, what do you use to sand round surfaces?

You need to find an automotive paint supply store. Look for a PPG, Dupont, Sherwin Williams, etc, dealer. They should have a display of them in varying sizes, shapes, and hardness.

Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, you may be able to get away with a Scotchbrite and Final Sand. You can find Final Sand (http://www.finalsand.com/) or something similar to it at just about any autoparts store.

Use a piece of sand paper in your desired grit and just sand it by hand, its pretty flexible and will even things out nicely.

i found what I was looking, or at least some of it. As stupid as this may sound, does anyone know where to get 2-3/4" adhesive sandpaper strips?? I can't seem to find them anywhere and its what I will need to use with this specific sanding block.
