JoJoYZF I agree with VA. Id definitely suggest sanding it again with a 220 grit and then wet sand between coats of paint and primer with about a 400, possibly higher for between paint coats if you do that too.

vabarber2 IMO Go over it with a higher grit as well as again after you've put down a few layers of primer! Thats how I alwas did my hatchback that I primed! Rattle Can rawks!

Body Prep before Primer???

Alright. I have most of my bike sanded and my top right Cowl should be in Thursday. Not wanting to leave my bike exposed to the elements I want to atleast get it primered soon.

For those who don't know the bike was rattlecanned black. So I had to take an extra layer of paint off.

This is what it looks like now after sanding with 100grit by hand.

I still have some more sanding to do along with the body repair which i think I have figured out.(But any tips on repairing plastics is appreciated)

But I am wondering if I should go back over the bike again with higher grit (220 or 400) then primer it or do a thick coating of primer and smooth that out with a high grit(If so what grit number?).
