[DML] Re: re brushing panels

If there are no scratches the blending pad is all you need (no
sandpaper). Learn to move the blending pad perfectly straight, ie, not
in an arc and no wiggles at the end of each stroke. Use masking tape
to protect the rub rail, marker lights, facias, and trim. Do not use a
lot of pressure on the hood to prevent gettting the "X" pattern. Do
small areas at a time and with practice you will eventually get good
at it. A small block of wood can be useful on the flat areas. Clean
well after using the blending pad.
