I have heard from a few people that there is some stuff you brush on to help smooth the surface to prep it for paint, and also that you can brush on lacquer thinner I think to get the same result.

One of our club members bought a few Pro Mod style bodies and said you couldn't just sand the bodies to try and smooth the finish, that it didn't sand well. He said he used almost a full can of primer trying to get a smooth finish before paint, and it was prime, sand, prime, sand, etc till it was smooth.

I seem to remember Roy Sorenson doing an article in an issue of his magazine about prepping 3d parts to use, and that was where I heard about the brush on stuff, but I'm not sure which issue it might have been. I will try to find the issues I have, and see if I can find the article to let you know.
