Painting popular trim mouldings


I need to paint about 350ft of moulding, popular. I already primed it. Do I sand and then paint, or paint then sand and paint again? Thanks

A nice 220 would be great
Then a coat of quality paint (I'd recommend an enamel, oil/alkyd or waterborne)
Another round of 220, if needed
Then the final topcoat would be ideal

Yep- slickshift has it right. Always sand primer before paint goes on- it's designed to sand smooth without a lot of work. Paint dries harder and is much more difficult to sand when dry...
