|Before applying paint, I went over the skin with 1000 grit sandpaper, wiped clean then paint!|
One surprise I had was that the can of Rustoleum Satin White I bought the other day has a new nozzle. It puts out a LOT more paint at once, I managed to create a drippy run line on one side of the skins which I corrected later. With that in mind, I put another light coat of paint on the panels every 30 minutes (3 times).

I went over each piece with 1000 grit sandpaper and all of the panels have a really nice, smooth finish. One more coat should complete these.
The skin needed some 400 grit to smooth out the blobs that the heavier-spraying nozzle caused. Then, once smooth, some 1000 grit has it all smoothed out, ready for paint.
