Doing a blend/colormatch with DBC

I have to do spot repair on my burb. I have DBC base and I forget the name of the clear but my questions are:
The area not getting color gets sanded with what grit(I used 1200)
When I finish blowing in the color can the clear be applied right over it or does it need to be saneded again ?

1200 should be good. maybe a little bit too fine but should work.

just let the base/color coat flash off till its uniformly dull looking ( usually takes no more than ten mins ) then apply your clear allowing to also flash between coats. only reason to sand the base is to remove dirt or other inperfections. but you would have to apply more base coat after you sanded it.

You can use a gray Scotch-Brite pad to prep the non-color areas. Easier than using paper.

yes but the scotch pad would be a much more inconsistent scratch. very un uniformed. the sand paper is the best tool. As a painter i never use scotch pads.

not saying it cant be done , just saying that the sand paper will provide a much more consistent and uniformed scratch. also it cuts, scotch pads actually tare the surface. another quality that the sand paper provides it it levels the surface , cutting the natural texture of the paint /orange peel to a level surface.

and no it doesnt suck using sand paper on bumpers. Also 3M makes an alternative to scotch pads. they are a foam pad with a sand paper like texture on them. the advantage of them over the normal scotch pad is that the cutting surface is uniformed and cuts like sand paper. it is foam so it is absolutely as flexible as the scotch pad. Also, they come in several textures.
