Default POWERDOME HOOD!!!!!!! and a steppy rear bumper

Going to need the paint experts to help me out with the steps required to prep and spray this hood black, i want an as close to stock paint job as possible i have the black paint. I will probably buy the quart cans at autozone, i will get the quart of gloss black, and the quart of clear as i have a HVLP spray gun to use with it.

I have had my fair share of painting things so prep will not be a problem. it just what sand paper to use, and do i wet sand after each coat? how many base layers and clear layers etc etc any info to help me out here.

THANKS!









And the Steppy bumper one dent to pop out and there is some sticker residue... nbd

I was gonna say "sand it to bare metal?" then I thought DiabloBlanco was making a joke.

ok, from my understanding i will need to block sand the existing coat of paint with 320, get everything smooth and spray with automotive primer, then block sand with 600 to attack any highs/lows and fill if necessary. After that, apply 2 coats of primer, wet sand with 800 grit let dry, then spray one light coat of base; once tacky, spray a thicker coat of base and let dry completely, after that prep and smooth the surface by flat wet sanding with 600 grit, let dry. then finally lay the third coat of base and let dry entirely. for the clear coats, will i sand the third coat of base to add "bite"? or just wipe with mineral spirits and spray over with 4-5 coats allowing 10-15 minutes to dry between each coat? once done i will wet sand and polish

correct?
