Wow, Yvon! What a glossy shine you have! What did you use for primer? What kind of paint and how did you apply the paint?

Hello Catherine

I use for primer Dupont epoxy primer and for paint i use Interlux Brightside paint

I spray this with air pistol
The Brightside paint was heavy and the pressure use is around 80 psi for best spray

I am very happy of the result

Loren, what is a DA sander?
I had the same thought, but then realized that it probably means "[b]Dual Action": not just a spinning disk, or a rectangular pad which moves back in forth in a straight line, but a more complex combination of "actions".

Loren can correct me when he gets a chance to see this.

Makes sense to me. So would an electric Random Orbital Sander be effective enough? I have to get this stuff off! See pics.(thank you, Benny!) I'd sure like it to look as nice as Yvon's Boler!

Catherine, your best bet would be to find someone to borrow a random orbital from and try it......they are fairly cheap to buy in an air driven version, as long as you have a compressor capable of running it fairly steady......I believe the dual action is switched from a back and forward action to a orbital rectangular pad and a random orbital which is switched from a disc sander to an action that kinda wobbles and spins somewhat at the same time by moving a metal disc to engage or disengage the action ....hope you don`t run into problems with that right rear roof area....looks like some previous damage wasn`t repaired too well.....but luckily it`s fiberglass... ... and almost anything can be fixed........how`s every thing else coming along?

Hello Catherine

How is the fibergass and gelcoat condition under the old paint ???

The sander that i use is a chicago pneumatic CP 865

Why do you not consider rent a compressor and a sander ????

You rent the kit for a week end and you make the job !!!!

I put the link oh my sander for the specification of the air supply

I don't know the condition of the gelcoat underneath. The "gelcoat" is just the smooth paint that covers the raw fiberglass right? I own a new air compressor and may just purchase a sander for it. I assume you started with a 220 grit and worked your way closer to 100 grit? Any advice for me and others doing this?

Sorry, I was away for a few days.

Yes, it stands for dual action. Maybe it's local parlance. I still see them sold and Home Depot and Lowes. They either lock the shaft for direct rotation, or mechanically offset and release it for large semi-orbital, semi-rotating action. They were used by auto body workers and boat builders, probably still are. Use a lot of air, make a lot of noise and spew a lot of dust.
