I might add that after one or two sandings with finer grits-400 can be pretty agressive- but will be more manageable if you “wet”sand.I use mineral spirits and generally don’t ever go much beyond 600. The issue with sanding is that you never quite seem to get an even sanded surface. That said I will rub out the last sprayed coat with 0000 steel wool. It will blend the high spots and the low spots. then if you are looking for a real shine use a mildly abrasive car wax/cleaner and then a paste wax.
Hope this helps.
