painting my door panels!
 
i finally got my door panels out and decided to paint them. i think i went the wrong way with them though. anyone have a good writeup on the proper way to prep and paint them?

i had found a write up on another forum that i cant find now about how to do it so i tried it on the one door panel. i cleaned it up good, sanded with 80 grit, cleaned up again and used a filler primer on it. it said to prime until the grain is gone. well i still see the grain.. am i not adding enough primer or what? how many coats do you usually use? and do i sand in between coats? what grit?

i could probably get some pictures if that helps any.. im trying to take pictures along the way so i can post up pics.
