    What sandpaper do I use to bring it back to original paint or even the prime area?

    Most good auto shops mix paint these days but if you can find one, a specialist auto paint supplies shop might be better.

    i got mine from http://www.autonindustry.com.au/ and got it sent to me as nowhere in cairns could supply what i wanted ISO free.
    phone them ask them and youll be good to go.
    i got a few litres of acrylic phantom black and 4 litres of ISO Free 2 pack clear, same will go over your sanded painted surface not down to metal.

    No way use 280, you will be forever sanding out the scratches. 600 wet and dry and then 800 before primer.
