Dont know if its rite or wrong but it what i was taught , if you use stripper we use aircraft stripper ,cover the panels you have stripper applied to and not working with plastic helps to keep from drying to soon ,dont get to far ahead cover one panel while working the next .as for sandpaper i use 180 to remone paint if you use finer grit 320/400 to strip paint it will cause heat that you dont need.
