NAPA has up to 2000 grit if you hit one of their paint depots....but IMO once you get that high in the grit it doesn't make a significant enough different that the average OCer would be able to take advantage of.

Just buy some 400 grit wet/dry, and use a picture frame glass. It doesnt need to be mirrored, just flat
