How much "scuffing" do you actually need for the trim colors.  I have been sanding wiht 320 till I see some slight dust then calling it quits  Seems to stick to just about anything, ask me how I know ;)

The most important thing about prepping a previously painted surface for repaint or trim colors is to first wipe with Isopropyl Alcohol. Then REGARDLESS of how fresh the first coat of paint is ALWAYS scuff the surface to provide some "tooth" for the new paint to stick to. It is very important to remove all sanding residue to maximize adhesion of the next layer of paint

The amount of sanding you do is up to you so long as you break the shine of the previous surface.

remember to tac-rag the surface and wipe once more with Isopropyl Alcohol before painting to remove all residue
