well my original paint was faded and the clear was flaking all i did was just wet sanded with 3m 400 grit wet sandpaper and got a smooth finish and depends how many coats of primer you put on and that will help remove the imperfections don't rush while you are sanding so you get a smooth finish

ok because i fixed a dent and rust spot on my car and i primed the area black, and just decided to paint the whole car. i was planning on sanding the whole car to a smooth finish(400,600,100grit sand paper?) then hit it with a couple of primer coats and wet sanding in between each like 2 coats. then just hit it with that flat black. can you clear coat flat black? without loosing the flat to it? lol

I used tremclad semi-gloss for the engine bay. I then painted the car satin black (not the same as flat- hard to explain but its sort of smooth and shiney, without being glossy) with John Deere paint. Yup, the stuff they use to paint atv's etc. Look it up. Its really tough, goes on nicely, and looks very professional when done right. You can ask if you want pics or more info.
