600 Grit wetsand will work. You don't have to primer the entire car as long as you know you can trust the existing paint not to chip or flake off underneath. Sanding to bare metal and applying primer block sanding is better so that you can see what lies underneath, (rust, waves, or bad bodywork) but it is not always necessary.
you prime where you have repaired...sand it down to level and feather in the edges... i dont really think the primer is going to suck up more paint...i havent ever heard of this happeningOriginally posted by eViL?mOnEyZ@Oct 16 2003, 12:26 PM

well said good advice in this topic........Originally posted by Illustrious Auto Works@Oct 15 2003, 02:14 AM
The most common misconception is that you need to prime your entire car before you paint it, regardless of the condition of the original paint. Primer is used to cover bodywork, or bare metal. Primer goes over these things to give you a surface to wetsand smooth to perfection. If you can wetsand you existing paint to perfection, then there is no need to prime. I see a lot of people priming there whole car for no reason. Oh yeah...to answer your question...600grit wet to prep your car, ok. Hope this helps.
