I think you should use 2000 grit.

nice tails...look just like mine... if you wet sand them they will lose their shine so you would want to clear coat them or put on another coat of the tint...but yeah wetsanding will smooth it out...and if you f'em up i can sell you my stock tails real cheap thumbsup
