320 grit wet.........knock down the shine followed by 400 grit wet....

try and stay off your edges...light cut so you don't break through...

Standard prep would be...use a good prep solvent followed by a tack rag....

Spray away!!!

Good Luck, Roy Landgrave :)

I'm not a pro painter but I have always painted my stuff. I thought you'd want to seal that red if you are going to a light or white color so it didn't bleed through. I always did. Maybe not needed with the new primers. RM

Before you sand, clean real well with soap and water ,then wax and grease remover. If there is wax on the hood, you dont want to sand the wax down into it. It will cause problems if there is. What colors are you changing from?
