Ok the bodywork is done and I recoated the tanks with epoxy primer. After the epoxy primer is dry I wet sanded it with 400 grit sandpaper and a pad to prep it for the Urethane primer. I sprayed the tanks with 3 coats of 2K Urethane primer from TP tools. This is a high build primer that has worked good for me. Why 2 primers? I use the epoxy primer for corrosion protection and a sealer. The Urethane primer is a high build primer that fills in the small imperfections and gives a good base for the next coat which will be the basecoat clearcoat. After the urethane primer is dry I will wet sand it by hand with 600 grit sandpaper and a pad.

Added some pics of the wet sanding. I'm out of clearcoat so I will have to wait to get some in before I can spray the basecoat and clearcoat.

the "spots" you see above on the tank are areas that need more wet sanding to level the primer smooth for the base/clear
