wipe the car down with an acitone to get rid of all the dust, what did you wash it with? car wash soap? dont! it has wax in it. also, you need to take some things off the car lol, like wiper nozzels, door handels, side moldings.

wash with heavy dish soap, let dry, and wipe down with paint thinner.

what will happen if i dont do that?

and can i just power wash it?
because of the wax, the paint/primer will not stick as well and could end up flacking off in the future or even 1 days after you apply it. prep work is everything when you paint and the surface much be free of ALL contaminates. unless you want a blotchy, chipping paint job i suggest you find some mineral spirits and wipe it down.

no washing, but test it on a small part first and make sure it isnt to strong. all you want to do is take all that sanding dust and wax off, not paint. dont worry if you see red on your cloth, thats the sanding dust, start to worry if you can "smear" the paint around while rubbing.

so; as long as the paint dosent get soft (put your finger on it and it wont be sticky) it is 100% fine

ok..the stuff i had was crapy..so i went to auto zone and then asked them about it they said to just re-sand it and then blow off the dust with a compresor.and then within 24 hours primer it so the pours dont close..because they said u dont wanna keep putting on more stuff on the car.

so i guess ill do that.
