    Hi mate.

    What I did :-

    2 coats plastic primer. Sand each coat 1500 grit

    2 coats normal grey primer. Sand each coat 1500 grit

    3 coats colour. Sand each coat 2500 grit.

    Light coat of gloss to start with.

    Leave a day to settle.

    Heavyish coat of gloss. Leave again for a day.

    Sand 2500 grit

    Bring the shine back with :-

    AG paint renovator
    AG super resin polish
    If colour is dark then use AG ultra deep shine.
    Last of all use AG gloss protection

    Sometimes I have had to re gloss after the final sand as I rubbed to hard and cocked it up


    Hope that helps. This is just my way of doing things

    Oh and leave for at least a week before fitting to let the gloss harden

    Edit : just to add that I'm at the first gloss stage with my moulded mudflats. When done I will post some pics to show what can be done with rattle cans and bit of time
