Well yeah the fussier you are the longer it will take. Dry sanding will also wipe out and clog up your paper faster than if you wet sanded. Don't think you are really doing anything wrong, and yes the more contours and body lines a panel has the longer it will take to sand for sure. Are you going over the 220 scratch with a dry guide coat? If you are going to seal I don't really see the need to go all the way with up to 600 grit, 400 should be fine enough before a seal coat. Now if you were going straight to a metallic basecoat then I would go to 600 grit.
