Default Sealer Neccessary???

I am thinking about painting my cart, it is plastic, no scratches etc. It will be flat black, I already have a gallon, of AUTO Paint Pro paint, just wondering if I need a sealer for the plastic?I am thinking about 2-3 coats of primer, followed by 3-4 coats of black....I want it to look good, but sealer is freakin expensive.

Another question...should I wet sand between primer coats and black coats, or just sand/scuff?

Also, what is the purpose of wet sanding?

Thanks, and just in advance I have been reading other posts but there are many different answers...

FLAT black?? A gallon?
That's enough paint for eight carts

I'm not a painter, but I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express....
If your cart has no scratches, sand it with 600 grit and spray it. Check with a paint store for an additive (flex agent) so the paint won't chip. They also have adhesives that helps paint stick to plastic.
Flat black will show few blemishes and with a gallon you could touch it up all you need! You don't even need to make it flow for a gloss.

Seriously, wait for a real reply. This cart was sprayed with rattle cans. No clear coat, no wax, nothing. Scuff and squirt. Good Luck!

you don't need any sealer. you should be fine with the system your going to use. just make sure you use adhesion promoter.

i think some of the guys in here are using the stuff that comes in the spray can. think its called bulldog or something like that? i use PPG automotive base coat and clear coat paint system on all my carts. so i use the PPG promoter that i spray on with my gravity feed paint gun.
