Revell Shelby GT500 1/12 First Model

Hey All

Very new here and new to modeling (well its been awile anyways). Just got the Revell Shelby GT500 1/12 scale kit in the mail today.
Well I got the block halfs glued together and the bottom side if the motor sanded smoth.
For the body of the car I sanded some casting lines out of in them wet sanded it with IDK maby 500-600 grit and just go done primering it.
I used krylon rubby brown primer out of a can (IDk if this in normal but the cans almost gone LOL).

Question when I wet sand the primer what grit should I use? I was thinking 2K grit.
