    :thumb: Maybe one more sand down with a finer sand paper will really smooth it down ,then prime and put the finishing paint on.

    prime it one more time and then get some 180 or 220 grit sandpaper and wetsand it with a sanding block then wash it down real good and then let it dry overnite and then paint it with ur final paint go light with the final paint and wet sand lighty after each coat lightly with 220 good luck

    The best way to paint a case or any piece of metal for that matter is the way you paint cars light coats and wet sanding, very fine wet sanding then 3 to 5 coats of clear no sanding and if you have access to a garage, hose the floor and walls for your clear cause this will make or break your finish so as little dust as possible
    Of course a compressor, paint room and a good paint gun cant hurt lol :hehe:
