you will need a fine grit like 250-400 grit. all you will need to do i rough it up and that paint is not all to hard i would imagen.

you do relize that what you want to do is a bigger project than you think right???

the spry gun will work fine in all but you will need to be very particular with it.
and in the bondo place it needs to be down to the bare metal.
