you want to sand until you get a uniform look all the way around, then go to next paper.

i have all those grits at mi casa, but i worked for a body shop. i know oreilleys has it, maybe not in stock, but can definetely order. imperial wet/dry sandpaper is the best IMO. when i did the stator cover on my xr50 i used aircraft remover, and sanded with 1200, then to 1500, then i used a buffing wheel. but you cant exactly use a buffing wheel on a frame haha
I love minis.

Typically when you've got the heavier scratches out you progressively go up on the grit. Hpome Depot usually has a good seletion, look for wet or dry sand paper.

While you're at Home Depot, take a look at the polishing wheels and some of the red and white rouge, they can really save some time.

Way back when I did a bunch of polishing I used a 5 hp motor with a big wheel on it. Took the scratches right out!
I still use it for small stuff. it turns 2 hour jobs by hand into 30 minute work.

+1 on the jacked up hands.

BTW, looking good so far!

What are your plans for the cast section of the frame?

All I know is that to keep a polished bike looking good takes a lot of elbow grease to maintain it's shine. That would never work for me. I wash my bike like once every 2 years:laughing6
