Sanding and Priming

Okay, I'm looking to buy sand paper tomorrow and start sanding the next day.

Few questions;

The car has the factory paint on it, but the guy I bought it from took sandpaper to it so it's all scratched up and looks primed. My mission, to take all the paint off and get it down to the factory primer.
We are going to be wet sanding it.

So, Which grit should I use?
Anything to beware of?
And this might be a dumb question, but...Once I hit the factory primer..Do I have to put another coat of primer on before painting or will the factory be good?

Thanks, I'll take pics along the way.

i would probably guess that everyone on here will say you should put primer on it again but thats just what i think they will say.

Re: Sanding and Priming

YOYOYOYO STOP!!!!, are you planning on doing the entire car?? This is a huge project there are many things you need to consider before you just start sanding. I am doin something similar, i have repainting my front right fender and part of the bumper next to it and including the right corner light into the whole deal. Since you are asking what grit sanding paper you need to use, i would suggest reading online about this whole ordeal first. I have spent a couple weeks at work, just searching on google about how to take on this project, and do it right the first time. You will read many different opions on how to do this beccause it seems everyone has their own way. What i am doing based off of different painting sites and forums is this. I got a new fender in so i can work off the car, im thinkin this wont work in your case, but anyway. I started sanding this with 180 grit to remove the clear coat, now the fender is a gray fender so it is hard to see when you get down to the factory primer because that is just a darker gray. But i have talked to a couple people in paint shops and they suggested i can prime on the factory paint as long as there is no clear coat on it. Another thing to take into consideration, if you are going to have a shop take over on painting or clearcoating for you after you are done with the body work, you need to have them test what you are using on the car, because sometimes or most times the products you are using will not work with their products.. Examples being your paint will melt when they throw on their industrial clearcoat. God this **** got lengthy, if you have more questions because i know i didnt awnser everything just let me knowknow

This is what i am attempting on my car, so far i have just worked on the fender itself by sanding it completely down and testing primer on the backside of it and also testing paints to see how many layers it will take to get a nice finish once the whole thing is done i am going to have it professionally clearcoated, thats the one thing i dont feel good about doing myself. I have had the clearcoat the shop is using tested on the paints and primer i am using to make sure the clearcoat doesnt eat right through this japattack

Re: Sanding and Priming

Well I already started sanding the other day. We went with 400 grit sandpaper and it seems to be working fine. All theirs left to do is the back panels, mirrors, trunk, trunk bumper and roof.
