Thanks for the info.Many years ago i used ajax and water and it took all of the wax off but it did nothing for the deep scratches.

i'll be curious how the maaco job goes...

i would do 600...and then do 1000....

it may make sense to prime with sandable primer where the scratches are...and then paint close to the color you are getting done..then wet sand again...

no paint job is going to "fill-up" anything.
