I like to sand the previous paint with 220, removing the clear and a lot of the basecoat with a DA sander. I want to leave some so I can get it 320 smooth before I spray with primer/sealer. I use the white dupont stuff, before painting with basecoat/clearcoat. That gave me a really good match on the old 02 red sprint. 320 smooth is what I used to do before paint years ago. It was nice to find out I could still get away with that. Paint now-a-days is so much better and easier to work with....
