If you absolutely have to sand I would use 1600 or 2000 and wet sand it.

I would strongly advise against sanding unless you have alot of experience. If you must use a super fine wet dry sandpaper and wet sand. The top coat is thin and is easily marred.

I used Zing on my boat and it worked wonders. I just cut it 50/50 with water and applied it with a scrub brush and just let it sit for a little bit and then hosed it off.

Here are some pics only using Zing, this was before I washed and waxed it.
