If you put it in the "interior" section of the forum then people with the knowledge of this sort of stuff will be there. :)

Why have you put it in this section? And why havent you searched? lol

This gets asked every day
TRUE.

but when i did some bits on mine i used 600 then 1200, then used grey primer and then sanded with 1200 again. then washed and dried
then fine layers of spray, about 3 or 4. then some laquer if u wish.

Im no pro sprayer and I really dont see how hard it is lol...

Sand what your spraying, the more you sand the smoother the finish, depends how much you can be arsed.

Then wack a few coats of primer on. Leave to fully dry.

Then spray what colour you want, give it a few coats. leave to dry fully.

Then apply a few thin layers of laquer, and leave to dry fully.

I dont see why everyone gets so confused :dontknow: Plus everything you need to know is on this site.
