In addition to spraying two more coats of primer to the body, Santiago primed the interior and engine compartment. He adjusted the spray pattern, shooting a narrow stream into hard-to-reach areas. After another 24 hours of cure time, Santiago sanded the car again, but this time wet-sanding it with 400-grit paper, which leaves a very smooth, scratch-free surface for the basecoat. Be sure to let the car thoroughly dry before painting, though. In all, this car needed two gallons of primer to be finished to Elite’s satisfaction.
