If your going metallic paint color Id go 600 prior to epoxy sealer (2k epoxy thinned 5-50% with reducer makes sealer). Apply sealer wait 30 min. then apply color. No sanding the sealer. If your not going metallic, then sand to 400.

Just going single stage Black Joe I don't think there is any Metallic in it but to error on the side of caution it wont hurt to go to 600 since will be black can never hurt right ?

Not a problem with 600. The bit finer is because of the metallics, you want them to lay correctly on a nice surface. Sometimes 400 effects the flakes laying down. Id also add just a touch of "activator" to your mixed urethane with thinner. Makes it a bit harder paint. Just like activator in clear coat.

I assume your going with urethane paint. The label will state its mix ratio, paint versus reducer. Id mix that up correctly, then add just an ounce of activator to the paint. Something along these lines.

https://www.eastwood.com/ew-urethane-activator-8-oz.html?gad_source=1&wcid=18669317220&wickedsource=google&wv=4

Some paints dont require an activator (sometimes referred to as a hardener) but I add a touch anyway.

What is urethane activator?
Universal Urethane Activator is a high quality catalyst formulated for use in urethane enamels. It provides a high level of gloss, combined with a hard, durable finish.

By no means do you need it !!! Its just personal choice. I put some in my single stage, my basecoat and clearcoat (required).

Well finally got some alone time with the SE today and hood plan is almost done 400 grit final sand then it can go into sealer and yes this is functional as well .... I am also gonna add an Aluminum mesh screen on the front of scoop for the hole didn't quite get covered by the main piece so have to "adjust" some metal there

P.S. The sheet metal screws are only temporary till I sand the 400 grit then will panel bond the scoop down for its final resting place they will come out when the panel bond is halfway cured like I did my floors in the other SE then long hair fiberglass bondo will fill in what needs to be and then If needed fill in any pin holes with skim coat of bondo the seal it up and start on the rest of Body work
