another thing to add on this. I have proper paint and body experience and knowledge on wet sanding. so to add on this make sure you have a spray bottle on hand at all times while you are sanding. With the spray bottle makes sure to spray the spot you are wet sanding at each hand stroke, this is important as it will help you get more of a uniform look and prevent the sandpaper from becoming too abrasive and take more of the paint than what you are intending. Some people will do 2500. I personally would recommend going lower than 3000 grit. It may look like the 3000 is not enough but once you properly buff it out you will see that it was enough

this is definitely going to come in handy for me. will this help get rid of swirl marks?
I would NOT wetsand to get rid of swirl marks. I would:
Wash car very well
Let dry
Good buffing pad (meaning no hard spots from dried polish, etc.)
Liquid polishing compound
Start to work......easy......just polish out the marks.
Fresh wax if it looks good.

swirl marks in the clear cloat are a pain in the butt lol. its always been a battle with them but they have slowly gone away on my Tiburon. most people don't notice, but I see them.
