    400 grit at a minimum, I would say 500 or 600 for your final sanding would be great. SEM Self Etch works good, but doesn't fill very well. We use it on small sand through areas here in the shop, and have for many years.

    Back in the Enamel and Lacquer days we used 360 as our final sanding grit. Basecoat is much thinner paint and sometimes the metallic will lay strange and show funny scratches if you use to rough a grit. I will add that I don't miss Lacquer or Enamel at all. ;)

    I don't know, it seemed much easier back in the day, we kept a gun filled with primer and you used it at will, 30 minutes it was ready to sand. Today with all the two part stuff seems like much more planning is required. Thankfully I got out of that line of work in 1974.
    My base coat experience is limited to Monokote colors , Missile Red, Jet White, light blue, yellow and orange.

    It does take some planning, but at least weathe doesn't affect you much at all. Painting Lacquer on a humid day was miserable.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Looks like I'll finish with 600 before primer!
