DANTHURS is correct, prep work is 90% of a paint job, use the proper chemicals and steps to make sure the body is clean and straight, when in doubt, clean it again. Besides guide coats when block sanding, some water on a primed surface can show what the body will look like when painted.
before color sanding and buffing? Allow new paint to dry at least 24 hours before wet sanding, though the time will vary depending on temperature, humidity levels and how many coats of paint were applied. Simply, just be sure the paint is good and dry before wet sanding.
Probably best to ask the paint reps where you are getting your paint. What brand/system is being used?
What steps are being done after you sand to bare metal/ repair work?
Depending on how much spot priming you are doing, a sealer may be a good idea before you spray the base, ensures a uniform color to spray over and better paint adhesion depending on the product and flash time. May not be needed but something to consider..
