My side mirror paint started to fade away as it is a sport version" aftermarket sport mirrors". I decided to take them out and paint them as I was not sure how the painting was done on the mirrors by the previous owner.
I had a hard time to sand it to bare metal and plastic( some part of it is metal). so I bought a sand paper grit 40 from screw fix and took most of the paint off with a great difficulty. this left lots of scratches on the surface.
I then started to spray primer on it after giving it a good clean . after each layer of primer and waiting for it to dry out for couple of hours, i sanded the surface with 500 grit paper and then 800.
I then painted it and again sanded the surface using paper 1000, however some of the scratches are still there, does that mean i will have to start all over again from grit 200 or something close so it takes the deep scratches off which was left by 40?
thanks for all helps
