I used acid etch primer just as an extra precaution, sometimes the joints and seams dont get as good of a spray as the rest, so i wanted to make sure i didn't get any peel.. as far as scotch brite compared to 400 Id say its pretty close.. I used green scotch brite, i tried the white, but its like 1000 grit, I could barely see the scuff so i decided to use green...

Rather than using sandpaper you can use a scuff pad, they should be in the auto-paint section and come in different colours/grades, they will scuff the surface without removing any of the 'texture' of the previous paint surface.

So how many coats of sealer and paint did you guys ended up doing? I'm guessing 1 for sealer and 1-2 coats for paint?

Normally sealer is a 1 coat deal and paint 2 - 3

but it will all depend on the product you buy, your local paint store will have data sheets for the paint you plan on using that covers thickness and everything.
