    Default Need 2500 Grit Wet and Dry, ideas where to get it from?

    Halfruads don't stock it anymore and I was so used to using their brand.

    I need some more sheets sharpish so can anyone recommend a good product and from where from.

    I just don't want to get something that ruins my many hours of painting work that I have put in so far.

    Please don't flame me is this is a stupid question. I was quite attached to their sheets of 2500 grit.

    Cheers

    I think you will be out of luck for getting any today matey,

    Maybe worth trying another motor factors or go to a body shop or maybe screwfix if you have one near.

    Will try screwfix first (if they have it in stock mind you)

    Thanks to another member here I have ordered these to try.

    Not cheap but worth a shot.

    Thanks very mate mate. I will bear that in mind if the ones I ordered dont come up to the grade.

    It sounds silly I know but im nervous of using another product as I have been used to Halfords products for so long and knew what I was getting and using.

    I get the feeling though im making a drama out of nothing, its just its taken ages to get various items painted and up to scratch, ready for the final sand.
