my paint was in pretty good shape, so no major work needed their, I was just looking to make it 'mine'.
I hit the parts with 320 wet to begin with, not only to remove loose paint (wasn't any to speak of), but to roughen up the existing stuff to promote adhesion. then 2-4 coats of grey primer (depending on each piece), then a light sanding with 600 wet, followed by 3-4 light coats of color, with a 600 wet after last, then another 2 light coats of color. Then 2-4 coats of clear, sanding after last with 600 wet, or 1500 wet, then another light coat or 2 of clear.
the clear was the hardest of them.. it tended to cloud as it dried (freaked me out a bit, until I realized its normal for this clear), but once it was about 24 hrs after application, it cleared up.
now I am have to wait about 30-45 days for the clear to fully cure before I can wax
