Wanting to paint the Handles and strips on my panther black focus.

Does anyone have a rough guide? I'll remove the handles but the strips I will do in place using masking and playing cards around them.

What grit sand paper should I use ? And do I need a primer? Cheers :) (spray cans)

I'll be honest mate, if your gonna do the strips then take them off or they will look poo. you can try it first though....or get a tube of tigerseal to stick em back on. Start with a 200 or 400 grit and get rid of as much of the grain as possible, get a high build primer and layer about 4-5 light coats on em sanding with 800-1000 grit in between coats...then paint and laqcuer mate....
