Sanding it to remove any imperfections in the initial coat of primer and body filler before putting on the paint.

what Grimm said was correct, it sanding the primer or filler with a Block sander which is basicaly just a sander thats good and flat (like a block) there is also a board sander which is the same thing only longer to spread the area of contack to help keep the surface as smooth and waveless as possible. most of the sanding ill be doing is with a Board sander, with the block being used on some od the areas with the most conture
