Do you want to take it all off? All the way down to the original plastic or do you just want to sand out the rought spots and and put anouther coat on?

I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

all the way down to the original plastic so I can sand the plastics rougher so the paint will adhere better ???

I used a paint stipper to get my engine plastics down to the original. But the best person to ask would be carbon_blue_gt he seems to know the most about painting.

I work in a paint store wave


Anyway, the best grit to use to get the original paint off would probably be 100. ONLY use the 100 grit until you see the plastic through the paint. Then step up to 220 or 320 to sand the plastic itself. The finish prep for painting should be 400 grit or higher (the higher the grit, the less sanding you will have to do on the primer)

After that, just follow my paint guide that GTSHYPR posted above!

Good luck, if you have any other questions, feel free to drop me a line! thumbsup
