I removed the box from my '86 Cadet; figured before I tackled the trailer (needs a lot of work....) I'd try my hand at redoing the box.

I'm going to give it a good cleaning (Bleach solution, Spray 9, pressure Washer), since there's a lot of dirt/mold.

My question is how do I go about prepping it for a repaint? I bought some fine wet sandpaper and some scrubbing pads, can I use my orbital sander to prep the surface? I've watched the West System DVD, and it called for a solvent to clean the surface between sanding etc....what are they talking about Acetone?

I have to fill in some holes etc and cracks but want to get started to try my hand at it, and start sanding the lid of the box (since there's no holes to fill)

I also need help adding additional pics in my posts, the one is from my hard drive but I do have a photobucket account with additional pics.
