Trailer: Trillium 4500 1977

Hello everyone !
We purchased a Trillium 4500 last September. We are planning on painting it with lots of funky colors. It's become an art project inside and out. I'm wondering though, what kind of surface preparation should we be doing before the primer ? Should we be doing some washing, scrubbing, sanding ? Anyone have the answer ?

As soon as I familiarize myself with how to post pictures on the site I'll send step-by-step silly pics of us doing our artist's project.

Thanks.

Fabienne

Hello! This sounds like fun, Fabienne!
Are you talking about painting the inside or the outside or both? You would likely have different preps depending on what surface you are painting.
Nancy from Oregon just put up a link on my "Faberge" thread inGen Chat. I think it was www.artcars.com There were lots of fun, funky paintjobs!
Yes! Pictures would be great!

Hi Gigi,
We're going to paint the outside. The inside is in great shape, just going to change the fabrics.
Thanks for the link.
