Evercoat says to sand with 180 to 220 grit before applying Slick Sand. I've heard that some people just use 80 grit because they're going to use 2 gallons of Slick Sand. Is using multiple coats of SS over 80 grit saving me any sanding time? By the way, this is a fiberglass body.

I use slick sand type products on 180 grit scratches. Filler and glaze for anything coarser.

cook the body for at least 3 days in the sun , hit with 100 grit then 2 coats of epoxy . personally epoxy is all i use.

Hopefully you have set that body out in the sun for a week or two to allow it to cure well before painting it..Just a tip is to block it out with 80-100 grit and get it straight before going to 180 and the slick sand..Actually if you do a good job of filling and blocking you may not need the extra material as a good primer will do fine..

Can I go from 80 grit right to 180? Or do I have to hit it with 120 in between?

I usually hit 120 in between.

You can go straight to 180. Some guys use that stuff over 120, which is the same as a worn out piece of 80 grit.
