scotch-bright pads

Posted by travis on Aug 18, 2006

Hey, I'm building an Arctic Hawk, and in several places in the instructions various grades or colors of Scotch-bright pads are called for. I've found a few places online I could buy them from, but I was wondering if any of you have used them, and just how necessary they are. Could I simply use an equivalent grade of sandpaper, and if so, what grades of sand paper would corispont to the red, and white Scotch-brite pads? Well, thanks for any help you can give.
