I have been painting my 65 coupe peice by peice with not enought light. An now that it is complete with noticable color shades, Now I have a building to shoot it all in one shot what prep work will or could be done, like scuffing it with a scotch brite pad,degreser an cleaner an a good tack. Whats the best thing to do?

I would prefer to lightly sand with 600 or 800 grit to remove surface imperfections before the scuff/clean/tack/reshoot.

I would sand the car for sure at least 600 grit then the reguler stuff wax and grease remover ,be sure to use one wet paper towel (Bounty no cheap stuff as they will leave lint on your car,also make sure u have some wet and some dry so u can wipe off the oil the wax and grease remover cutts loose)then I like to blow the car off then blow with low pressure as I tack then u should be ready to spray.
