Depends, if the car is recently painted and you want to wet-sand it, use really, really fine sandpaper. For bondo or body filler (car not painted) I typically start with a 40 - 80 grit to rough it in, then move to a finer paper.

80 grit to start then finer paper as you go . You do not need to remove the paint to metal but it has to smooth to the touch before painting any sanding marks will show. Black is very hard it shows EVERY THING you missed and any dings or dents.
