prepping my car now for paint. questions on how far to sand existing paint

i need to know how far to sand down the existing paint. some have said scuff the clear good and block the car to make it all even. others have said that i need to sand to the base. On the first car i prepped the base was sooo thin that the sander burnt right through it.




here is a pic of a fender i did.. is this scuffed enough? i know its going to kinda hard to tell..


2nd pic is after i washed the fender.

i didnt sand much of the fender under the molding.
