    Default using a DA to prep existing paint.

    So i just started prepping my truck bed. My plan is to put 320 on my DA and hit the entire truck bed, in the areas my DA cant get to ill use 320 by hand or maybe red scotch brite pad.

    After that, clean with prepall.

    Spray my epoxy primer as a sealer and let it flash off per tech sheets.


    Spray a few coats of base letting them flash per tech sheet between coats.

    Finally spray clear same as the base letting it flash between coats.




    Does this sound like a proper way to prep and spray the bed?

    I sounds like your process is fine except that 320 may be a little too coarse depending on the color and the type of paint being used. We normally don't go any more coarse than 400 and most of the time we use 600 prior to painting. However since you're using epoxy primer as a sealer then the 320 will probably be fine enough.

    You need to clean it as best you can before you start sanding.
    then again afterwards.
