Go to a auto body paint store, they will have what you need, use 400 block the truck then use an epoxy primer, then do any body work over that, the epoxy primer will seal the metal, be sure to use a respirator when shooting paint...its your life..

Thank you, now I just need to find them, I can only find 120 and nothing finer
Hi Greg, your truck looks awesome..... Let me give you a few tips. I don't do polishing, however, a lot of my work is for other shops that don't want to tackle the metal work. So most my work goes out the door bare. I get the best results by (grinding) <------ not fond of the word grinding, I use the term sand, or finishing. So I try my darnedest to sand all in one direction. I use 60 grit on a soft pad to finish my welds, and work my way up to 120 grit. (You can go as fine as you like, 320 makes a nice finish) If you stay in one direction it's easier to hide as you work your way up with the finer grit.

You can work your finish better then what I have here, this particular part will get installed here and put in sealer.
