    no sand paper creates the smoother surface but you have to go over it a couple times the metal one doe the same thing just in a different fashion.

    I'm right. The scourer is to rough the tube up, and u should always leave the glue till it barely sticks to ur finger when u touch it, so its almost dry.

    @piclejuice if you had to wait for the glue to dry before you put the patch on it wouldnt stick

    Iam pretty sure that you have to wait for the glue to dry before you put on the patch

    the metal scourer is for the chalk, it dries the glue out stopping it sticking to your tire.

    i thought the sand paper was to create a rough surface for the glue to stick to as opposed to a smooth surface....Thats why some kits give u a metal scourer
