How should I go about wet sanding a white car if I can't see

Use 2000 grit sand paper and look at it from all angles as you are sandingonce you have sanded the whole panel rinse it of and dry it off and look at it from all angle though the whole panel to see if there is any shinnyness to it if there is go back and do it again but do it lightly all you are wanting is the clear coat to be smooth before you wax and buff

I suggest a sanding block as well to get laser straight edges and do it is a x pattern
