How to Prepare a Blend Panel for Paint

Blend Panel Preperation

 
Option 1 (scuffing with sanding paste)
This is likely the easiest choice and the safest. Using a grey or gold scotch pad in conjuction with a sanding paste, you scrub down your entire panel thoroughly. These nylon pads are very effective at abrading for good adhesion and get into some groves sandpaper has difficulty with. Their is also less chance of breaking through your edges using this method.
Option 2 (sanding)
You can simply sand the entire panel with 1200 or finer, wet or dry. This will give you a flater surfacer to start with and is a better choice when your going for a show car finish. You can even combine the two methods if that works for you.
