Ok, here it is-- 220 grit is used to scuff up the original paint on their.

400 grit is used to sand the primer nice and smooth for a reflective finish

600 grit is used to sand primer IF you want to go the extra mile and get a mirror like finish but you dont have to.

**If your just going to sand the original paint on the case and then use the base coat right after it. Then use 800 or 1000 grit to sand the original paint and just paint over it.

It gets confusing cause you have to decide on what your budget is and also decide on how much work you want to do before you buy things and when you change your mind everything has to be reworked.

Most people dont go to the trouble of getting a mirror like finish cause it costs more money and more time then just painting it normally without all the extra labor and products.

1500/2000 grit is only for clear coats to make it look like a mirror finish

Just what I needed. 1000 grit for sanding base coat that doesn't require primer? Right now I'm just doing interior. Forgive me for my noobishness.

Ya I agree, if your not using clear coat is unessescary. IMO 800 grit is the highest I would go for sanding under the top coat (final coat) with no clear. But that also depends on the top coat paint your using.

Np at all, you just have to make up your mind first and say I got this much to spend $100 and then you plan your paint job but if $100 gets cut to $50 then you have to rework the preparation steps and cut products out but still want the same result you have to improvise.

Well, really I'm just cutting the project into 2 parts. I plan on using the paint you recommended later, just not at this time.

Cool.

Yes iandroo888 is right, along with everyone else, they all work good honestly and with the proper prep and work the appearence will look almost the same.

I chose autopaint cause I was able to choose my own color and I was able to use a catalyst (hardener) which makes it more durable than any spray paint. Also if I scratch it (heaven forbid) I got a touch up bottle matched to my exact color and can touch it up just like a car and the spot looks indistinguishable. Plus I had the experience/knowledge, equipment and the funds to do it. Lastly it is the highest quality paint there is.

The difference between them and spray paint is that (krylon/rusto etc) are enamel or lacquer paints, Enamel and lacquer is very cheap and inexpensive to make and the pigments/binders that they use are cheap also. But that doesnt make them inferior just makes them very affordable. Spray paint cans also use one type of solvent/thinner for one temperature range usually 70-80 degress for optimum results that's why the can says use at 70-80 cause its made for that range for best results.

Making the choice to use automotive paint products or spray paint is up to you to make. Automotive paint is of the highest quality and if your budget allows so be it. There are many benefits and cons to using it.

Made some great points there. I think I'll go with the ketone for the interior, and decide on the exterior letter on (and hopefully with more money in my pocket). Found it here for a better price: $20 shipped. I'll get tomorrow when my parents will listen to me.
Edit
And once again my mom has a moody day so no purchasing for me. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
