Its called 'grit' there brother. The lower the # of grit the harsher it is to rub off paint- so 60 or 80 will rough it up./remove and finish with 120-150's.......but that is what I've done in the past and not 'proper' by all means.

What this guy said. Emery cloth for sure to finish it off to get that smooth feel and it will take away all the super big scratches, not deep but ugly look ones.
