Get a bucket of water and put a small amount of dish soap in the water, soak the sand paper in the water till its soft and pliable then sand with that. It will just smooth the finish before the final finish is added. I didn't mean to hijack his question but I've done some wet sanding on vehicles so I thought I would jump in.

Correct. A bucket of clean water and some 600 grit.

I wet sanded it tonight and looked it over really well for any imperfections.

 -

It looks good so I'll tack it off, apply a few more coats of Deft and let it dry overnight.

 -

Tomorrow I'll wet sand with 1500 grit just to knock off any dust or lint in the last coats and it will be ready for the final finish. FedEx didn't show up with it today so it looks like it will be here tomorrow.

Does anybody dislike FedEx as much as I do? According to the tracking info my finish material was supposed to be delivered 2 days ago. I still don't have it and they don't know where it is. I thought even FedEx could get a package from Pennsylvania to New York in less than a week. I guess I overestimated their ability. Unbelievable!

Well that bow is no good without the finish, so you might as well just send it to me. I'll find something to do with it!

I'll get it right out via FedEx. You should have it about 3 days after never.
