The highest I have found and used was 800 grain wet/color sand. I started w/ 200 grain and worked my way up. It's a very VERY time consuming process. Don't try to use 60 or 80 grain making quick work of the plastic, you end up with deep grooves that show in the painting. After sanding, you could always use a very thin coat of bondo to even out the surface then sand that down, primer, then paint.

Good luck.
