View Full Version : Fine Grit Sandpaper

I am having a very difficult time trying to locate 1000-2000 grit sandpaper. The finest I have been able to find around here is 600. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might be able to track some down so I can complete my swim deck?

Most Auto Parts stores will have it. I remember buying some at Schucks. Autozone probably also carries it. Where are you located? Have you tried a Automotive paint store? If you want I could buy some here in Portland, OR and send it to you. You can paypal me the money. Let me know. Travis

Have you tried NAPA, Pep Boys or the like? I picked up some 2000 grit at one or the other some time ago.

For some reason it didn't even occur to me to try anywhere but hardware stores. Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

Rockler and Woodcraft sell fine grit paper, too. 3M makes really fine papers and they're available at a lot of paint departments in big box stores.

In the "find" box top left type in 6835A11 and take a look at that page that shows up.
220 through 2000 don't see what you need? Let me know.

I tried the local paint and body shop...they flipped me a few sheets of 2000 no charge, just for asking nicely.
