I appreciate the feedback. I started sanding and Man that latex paint
they painted over the fibreglass sticks like s**t to a blanket for sure. I can see where the prep is going to take a long time before I even think of painting
this rig. Thanks for the input.

. Oh, I almost forgot about washing it and wiping it down with cleaners to make it dirt and grease and wax free. Then comes the time spent taping everything that you don't want painted. [Hope I didn't tape the dog inside] A coat of primer and then sand. Another coat of primer and sand. Three coats of finish colour. But don't forget to sand in between. Do this outside in the driveway in front of an audience of your kibbitzing neighbours and finallyafter a couple of week when it didn't rain, step back and accept the neighbours appreciation.
Actually I think that they are glad the sanding and dust is all over with.
Was it all worth the effort involved? Darn right!
