    I've been told and did a search but keep getting different results. I'm seeing anything from 400 grit to 1000 grit.

    Basically I got my car's body all restored and primered the bare metal parts and a few other little spots on the bumpers. Before I take it in I would like to block sand the rest of the car to get rid of any last little scratches / clear coats / wax just so I can be sure it'll be done properly.

    what grit should I use? :hs:

    thanks

    there is a lot more sanding to a paintjob than what is done before primering.. however right before primer I'd use 400. Then after primer use 600 and spray primer again.
