of hand sanding.
you see is the original factory primer.
factory spare part tubs were painted with the gray primer.
For example: Kremer K3's, Joest, and American teams with S.N.
001-0030 were all spare part 935 tubs.
cleaner blew off most of the black paint. The rest of the
sanding was scuffing up the gray paint and preparing the bare
metal for black urethane primer.
areas are difficult to sand, but you have to do it so the
can see, there was really no paint left after steam cleaning.
220 grit paper is all it takes for the primer to stick.
black primer because between the first coat of black primer
and the second coat of satin black paint, if I miss a little
spot of the primer (because of painting upside down) the black
final coat will always blend with the primer. The end result
is a real nice paint job.
when all the parts are installed, you only see about 1/5 of
the sheet metal.
parts to sand are always the corners. We use a wire brush
in a die grinder and that roughs up the areas just fine.
Another day without air, but it is fixed now and we'll be
able to use it starting tomorrow.
Hip Hip Hurray!!!
