Depending on how much sanding is needed start low and work your way up to something like 600. You want to make sure its as smooth as possible or you might have groove marks in the paint. If you get down to the bare metal be sure to use a self etching primer to help it adhere to the metal. Wetsanding between coats will help the finish product be smoother but don't sand the last basecoat (this is of course only if needed). Then wetsand your last coat of clear and buff to bring out the shine.
