depending how deep it is:

start at 320 grit and smooth out, then jump to 800

apply some primer, less is more, so a few light coats 2-3 mins apart or when dry,

let it dry for a few hrs at room temp, lightly flat with the 800 again,

then clean off and paint, again less is more, build up your coats then let that dry followed by clear coat
