If i'm not too late??
Noel's right in saying use warm soapy water - Use a few drops of Fairy.
Rule of thumb dictates that when you pick up a new sheet, it should be divided into 3 equally sized strips, tearing widthways across the sheet - if you are using a standard rubbing block, each strip would fit the block quite nicely.
I would start with an 800 grit, then a 1200.
I might also be tempted after using the 1200 to rub the 'business' side of a new strip with another one to take the 'harshness' out of it and using this before a cutting compound.
You could finally use 'jewellers rouge' to get an ever better result - but you may have to obtain some from a glazing or windscreen company.
Political correctness defined:
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
