Chris, this is for the brown car - no filler needed. Just respraying the bumper.

Can't make Bernie's; family in town.

FWIW, I have done 15 years of body work using a electric palm and manual hand sanders. Now that I have a real compressor, was considering upgrading. Didn't know the first thing about air sanders, which is why I asked.

Great feedback from everyone!

chris i'm not trying to put you down at all . i'm trying to make a point ! kenik put up a post about da sanders . i was just trying to say that the one he was looking at would not be good for his needs for the job he wanted to do . when your learning how to do auto body work learn it the right way from the start with the right tools . electric palm sanders are ok but the orbit is to small becouse its made for wood . not auto paint and plastic fillers . a fileboard (longboard ) sander has its limits and in most cases is only good for flat areas . again the right tool for the job . the sander that kenik posted is a good sander for striping paint when set on grind mod . and works good for hogging down your first coat or two of plastic filler . again the right tool for the job . chris i am sorry if i pissed you off .
