Even after 1500 sand, going straight to a wool pad with meguiar's diamond cut doesn't take too long to buff out nice. If using m105 ultra cut it's even faster.
If you do wanna sand more, go with 2000. All it does is makes buffing a little easier. 3000 accomplishes literally nothing, unless you're going to be hand polishing afterwards. It's nice for small corners or edges where a buffer can't reach well.
I rarely sand above 1200 myself, Why would I? When I have a Polish designed to take out and remove 1200 grit sand scratch!
Some guys like to work hard I suppose?
Not Even if I had a Bunch of Urethane Wave or Orange peel to remove.
If I have to remove imperfections like that I go after it with 600-800 and work myself back to 1200 or Reshoot after sanding it with the 600 for a nice flow coat.
A buffed panel will rarely looks as good as an as sprayed glass panel does because of that I would rather denib and do spot polishing of minor imperfections when possible. Doesn't happen very often from my Booth but I keep trying. Just my opinion.
