    Default Question about finishing up a small panel area

    Hello, I'm fixing some dents in a small side panel and I have it sanded smooth in the areas I wish to redo, but I reckon I should primer and paint the whole panel, not a large area. The parts of the panel that have not been worked on, before applying primer, should I lightly sand to create adherence (teeth) for the primer? With 2000 grit, 600? thx.

    320 should be good if using good quality epoxy.....maybe 400 if reducing epoxy for sealer

    Anything that gets primer (imo) should get 320 sanded. That way the primer adheres well AND 320 will wet sand out easily with 600 wet.
