    im fixing all the body panels on my truck and want to repaint it when im done so its not like 5 differnet colors.

    what prep work should be done? i have a dual action sander that i could go over the exicting paint, but im not sure if the primer will stick to it our not. i want it to last somewhat, not fall off the first time i powerwash it.

    any suggestions?
