Bare minimum - using a finer grit - the 320 as recommended.

It's too late now, but less is best. You really don't need a big toothly ripple for the paint to get a mechanical bond. On the other hand, ignore all advice here and believe and follow the directions of the manufacture.

PS. some of that doesn't look like bare fiberglass to me.
