    No problem. Better to remind to google instead of getting 8 million different opinions on something that touchy and labor intensive.

    oh, one other thing. The article doesn't specify what fine grade is. 2000 to 4000 is fine grade. I think you might find a finer grade than that but, try that and see how that works.

    I used 2000 on the inside intakes of my hood and that prepared it just fine for paint.

    Remember to use an acetone cleaner to remove any impurities after sanding and just before paint.

    Good luck.

    Grease and Wax Remover!!!!! and if you get some pices of the blue 4X8 board insulation you can make your own sanding pads. if your working with curves. smnding blocks work well for the flat spots.
