use the adhesive sand paper and stick it to the sanding block.
It works very well.
Takes a little elbow grease but, well worth the work

I just walked in the door from Home Depot.
I picked up some of the adheasive for about 3.00 for a pack of around 8 (i think)
The sanding blocks are cheap too.

Since you are down to a 320 grit, consider using a sanding sponge. It's a sponge about 1" thick that is covered with the sanding grit. You should to able to buy that grit at a Sears, True Value, or Woodcrafter.

Use a sanding block! dont use ur hands only cuz u will get orange peel in the final paint, 3M Automotive Sand paper is good to use, sand it, wax and grease remover it, tack cloth it, then prime it, scuff over the first coat of primer and lay down a second coat. REMEMBER Multiple thin coats are much better then one thick coat. After u get done with the second prime job, wet sand with 400-600 grit wet sanding paper, DONT FORGET THE BLOCK!!!!

i would have used wet 600. 320 is going to leave deep scratches, unless you plan on primering. If so, wet sand with 600 afterwards. And sanding is not that bad..man up and do it. hahaha..give them arms/hands a workout.
