I would have to agree with Hemi...............seems like you may have some issues with the body yet .......if you are going to reprime which sounds like a good idea take your time between coats......let it flash..........assuming your using a urethane 4 to 1 type prmer try mixing it 4 parts primer 1 part hardener/activator 1 part urethane grade reducer.....will help it flow out a little and not leave quite as rough.Let it flash off 15/20 minutes between coats....Use a guide coat as Hemi suggested__darker or lighter coat for contrast to your primer.............and start blocking with 120 on a longboard or a paint stick......use the 120 grit just long enough to break through the guide coat with no spots leftif you go through the guide coat and the primer you have some high/low spot issues which you may have to fix. If no issues after blocking with 120 spray a light coat of black for a guide coat again and proceed with 220 /320 or whatever you are going to finish sand with...as fr the second guide coat get a can of Black Lacquer in a spray can.it sands eas sand paper.........
