UMM, why you sand blasting anything did i miss something?
are you frosting the plexi or something?
just sand the **** out of rigid plastic,
50 grit then 220,
then fine or just lightly use 220,
first coat,
then before clear use 400 wet sand and in between each clearcoat

or dont sand at all between coatsjust wait till the paint has settled but not dried,
if you do this clearcoat takes MUCH longer to dry, the coats under it have trouble breathing to dry, ive never noticed a different in the two processes, but its more hassle free to sand, you never know when too much is too much, if you do paint extremely heavy the coats will merge and crake and peel right away

you gotta clean it like **** if you sand blast, but i guess each person has thier best process

rustoleum mettalic, silver high gloss, with black flat primer undercoat:
clearcoat: (for the people that dont know, thats what the shell of a 360 looks like when its apart)
