I am going to paint some accessories for my Jeep (tube bumpers, step bars, etc.). I am planning to prime and paint them after sanding the surface rust off. I was planning on doing some wet sanding just for practice.
I need some recommendations for which grit sandpaper to use at each stage:
—Remove surface rust, scuff old paint (50 grit? 100 grit? 150?)
—Should I sand with a finer grit before paint, or just wait for the wet sanding after paint?
—Should I sand with a fine grit sandpaper after primer and before paint? (maybe wet sand?)
—Wet sanding? (3000 grit)?
