Sanding before Slick Sand

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.

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?

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.
