Sanding, cutting, buffing, polishing -- confused.

So, I decided the other day to sand down a deep scratch on my front bumper and now its all hazy and ugly. and the scratch is still there, even after a botched attempt at painting it. I used 2k grit and yea. I don't know what to do and it looks worse. Any suggestions? It's all hazy. I can take a picture for show if anything.

Best I can suggest is to go to Autogeek's Forum and do a search on scratches there. Or search on Mike Phillips, the guy is a genius at that stuff.

generally.. its wetsand with 1k to 1.5k to 2k grit paper..

then you take rubbing compound and cut it.. then a polish compound

then you wax it and buff it..

each step needs more and more and more surface area to blend the work.
