Sanded out dash

Thanks for the feedback. Today I sanded out the minor flaws on my 65 F-100 dash.
I just sprayed two coats of Summit Epoxy primer Sunday, and it sanded great with 220 grit / wet. Smooth but enough texture for my Summit Acrylic Urethane top coat to grab. Will wax and grease it Saturday just before I spray two top coats.
Paint now a days is so far advanced than the 60s & 70s. When I was in the U.S.A.F we sprayed our cars in the aircraft hangers at night with Base Surplus spray cans, sanded and clear coated. Sold the car in the 80s and it still looked good....... Ed

Hey Ed...I hope the 220 grit was typo...320 grit would be a better choice, 220 is a little coarse and may show sand scratches. If you did sand the dash with 220 grit, especially wet paper, wet paper leaves even a coarser footprint than 220 dry, it might be a good idea to go over it with 320, just to be on the safe side.

320 grid wet or dry? I don't use much pressure sanding. It looks really smooth I just took the sheen off the primer. My topcoat is Summit Acrylic Urethane with Summit Activator 4:1. Question should I thin it down (what ratio would you use) with Summit Single Stage Reducer? My gun is gravity feed with a 1.4 tip.
You are right on, I was told "Epoxy Primer will stick to air" Thanks for the feed back.....Ed

I don't care to thin down a product unless it's recommended in the mix ratio. If your using a gun with a 1.4 tip, your going to get enough material out as is. If anything, a 1.3 might give you better atomization...but, if a 1.4 is what you have, it will put the material on...hope this helps.

I'd be a little concerned about the scratches from the 220 also. especially on a dash that you'll see every time your in the car and from different angles.So you have two choices,you can reprime and wetsand with 400 or dry sand with 320 or you can paint as is and if the scratches are too much for you ,you can sand down the paint with 600 and repaint with two more coats ,then it'll be slick as doggie doo...a reprime would be the better,cheaper way to go....but those scratches will show even if it looks nice and shinney .....
