Paint Help Please

I used this primer "Duplicolor Self Etching Primer" Then I sprayed it with "Krylon® Rust Tough® Rust Preventative Enamels". When I sprayed it was very rough. This indicates to me that I should do some type of sanding/cleaning to the primer before painting. {the parts were sand blasted before priming} What should I use to give it a lite sanding ? {wet sanding?} and is there a chemical that I should wipe down the primer with before appling the paint? If I use a chemical should I dry it with a towel or use compressd air? Thnx Herm P.S any other suggestions/commnets about painting are welcome

I spray a grey sandable primer over the etching primer and then sand that leaving the etching primer alone, etching primer gets one coat the sandable primer gets as much as I think it needs to smooth the surface out. I wet sand the primer with 400 to 600 grit and go slow because if I see the etching primer I stop and lay on some more sandable primer. I use a wax and grease remover with a lint free cloth and let air dry because I also tinker in grease while the paint is drying and can never quite get it all off my hands when I go back to the pieces again.

I'm not sure you want to use a woodworking tack rag for your tractor paint work. The woodworking tack cloths are treated with some sticky stuff to pick up sawdust or sanding residue before finishing. I've never heard of someone using them for automotive/metal painting.

The ones we get at the body shop have a sticky stuff on them..I have used a couple different brands of them and they was all sprayed with some sort of sticky stuff...I know one thing..don't push on them very hard or you will have the sticky stuff on your parts..We always just kinda glide the cloth lightly over..

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
