I'll say it once again.. steel or aluminum 80 grit is just to heavy. You only need 220 grit as your not trying to chew up the steel but just rough it up. Another alternative is steel wool which works just as good.

Step #10: Its better to wet sand than dry sand as you'll get a better finish and surface but it does make a bit more mess.

Also with enough layers in the case you shouldn't need a clear coat. Clear coat is really to just make it shine.
