paint prep

does anyone know what grit i should sand my current paint for me to put on primer and then the grit i should go up to for the primer and paint.
i was think 400 to prep current paint for primer and prepping primer for paint and then up to 2000 for the final paint layer

Re: paint prep

if you have never done paint work, dont learn on a car you care about looking good. I dont know the answers but if you dont do the prep right nothing else will work out at all.

We use 320 to prep (400 will work well too). After you primer you can paint over anything 600+ 2000 will take a long time to get smooth but would work. I would recommend something with a little more grit though. Good luck.
