Ok, i've read a lot of helpful tutorials on paint in here. Especialy the one by Hoxy(?).

I have a couple questions before I start.

I have white primer, Black and Red krylon plastic fusion, 360 grit sand paper(i know i need 800).

I have seen some people say they dont need to sand with the Krylon Plastic Fusion paint, and some say diff.

Now should I go with grey primer? and would it look better if i primed it even though on the Krylon can says no sanding needed?

I use the same paints and here's how I do it. Sand up to about 400 grit then put down the primer if you want to use it. Sand lightly with the 400 again and lay down your first coat of the Krylon. Then from there just do the usual, sand, light coat, sand, coat, ect, till it's nice and shiny. The primer won't help the coloring any since the case is already white, but it will help the paint hold. Just be sure you wash it good each time with a soap that removed oil and grease, that Krylon paint hates that stuff and will orange peel like crazy if there's any on the plastic.
