Your exact steps are dependent on which custom recovery you are using (e.g., CWM, TWRP, Philz Touch, etc.). For the custom ROMs I have tried the developer always included information in one of the first couple of posts explaining exactly how much wiping is required for that ROM and what specific steps to follow in CWM or TWRP. For a good example of this look carefully at jovy23's original post in this thread and you will see both TWRP and CWM sections:
I've seen different definitions of "full wipe," one example of which is in the 6th post of this thread:
but, having said that, if your ROM's developer has specific instructions it's always a good idea to follow those. Good luck!
