i bought some used type R side skirts and i want to get them painted. i know it costs more at a shop to get them prepped and painted, so im thinking i can save some money and do the prepping myself.

but what does the prepping involve - is it just sanding down the paint? or is sanding and primering?

if i do have to primer it myself, would can primer be sufficient?

thanks in advance

just have the professionals do it. They wont like that you did it yourself.... Might even charge you to fix it if you screw up.

Sand with 400 grit even if they're painted/unpainted. Make sure you sand enough to get all the shine off of it if there is clearcoat on it. Otherwise the paint won't stick.
