Hey guys im almost ready to paint, and i wanted to ask, how many times should you sand-reprime and resand once you get to 400, which is were i am stopping right before i touch it up lightly with 800.-just from your experience (those who have actually painted their dsm "themselves")

Fyi. so far, (60-80-120-240-320-400)- orbital palm sander. Then (primer) And (400- dry,400-wet)- by hand/block. Then (primer) again. And will be doing (glide coat) soon.

you didnt paint the bumper? and what do you mean roll primered or sealed? you used a paint roller?
Ha yeah it's a lot of upkeep and making sure almost nothing touches it.





Thanks for the acknowledgment everyone.

There are a few photos in my profile, I honestly don't have to many good pictures of my car yet. If you want a couple pictures of the process I'll put up a couple of those.
