Stages of sanding?

Post by austin26372 on January 4th 2011, 4:10 pm

From what I've gathered, I plan on sanding every two coats. I want to get a straight forward plan here so that I know for sure what's gonna happen.

1. primer is on the truck... sand with ______ grit

2. first 2 coats on... Wet sand with _____________ (Or different grains? Perhaps stepping down in texture?)

3. next 2 coats, etc...

4. Final coat... Wet sand with _________________

Seems good. That's what I did/am doing.

Sanding between every two coats.

I used 600grit on the primer (all I had on me) and I actually had to go down to 320 for some areas, because it wasn't smoothing down. (600 grit must have been getting weak).

But you want to move up to higher grits, or else the final coats of paint will never smooth. 600 grit will leave some rough texture in the paint.
