Side steps rusting, need advice

Hey guys, just touching base before i attempt to repaint these steps. The have the black paint peel on the underside and rusting. I looked up how to repaint, and i found this process. Although, I don't know how to sand...use sand paper or an orbital machine? Any info would help, thanks

1) Wipe down with mineral spirits x2
2) I found this purple degreaser that did wonders and used that another x2
3) Hit it with the mineral spirits again to get the purple degreaser residue off. Not sure if that did anything
4) rough sand it with 200 grit
5) 2 coats of rustoleum self etching primer
6) sand down again
7) 2+ coats of rustoleum automotive primer
8) sand again
9) 2+ coats of rustoleum truck bed liner
10) install
