It's finally warm enough here in Calgary to get started on my Surfside
renovation project. Have had lot's of great input regarding the interior walls, ie Ensolite alternatives, but I'm going to start tomorrow with getting the whole thing ready for paint
. We're looking at painting
it a vintage style, navy blue bottom, off white top with lots of chrome to make it pop!
At this point our new surfside
is an empty shell, and I purchased it this way, and we're looking to do some great/fun things with it.
My question is: How far do I need to go down with sanding the original gelcoat before applying a new paint? I plan to start with an 60 grit and work my way up to a 260 grit before priming, etc.. I have an oribital sander so any advice or links to any great info on this is always appreciated!
Thanks and I'll be posting some pics tomorrow to let you see what she looks like at this point.
