Yes I use 180 Sandpaper until 95% of texture is gone then I use a qucik 320 over that... Seems to get it smooth with no scratches... I try not to use anything rougher then 180 seems to tears up plastcs to me...

I was curious about this because I'm about to have all my plastics done and they guy doing mine said they lightly scuff them, shoot it with adhesion promoter , then a epoxy coat to fill in the texture, sand smooth, prime, then whatever color.

Pro's or Con's to different methods?

Pros of doing em the way I do them....

Less material build up with primer, less chance of cracking on more flexible parts...


Cons.

Takes a crap load longer to do them they way I do them but, to me I feel Id rather spend the extras hours and do them riht and not dull the texture....


Ive seen it done both ways, just choice of preference on much you want to work on them....

as long as they do good work they should turn out great, i've seen plenty of plastics done that way with no probs
