36 or 40 is a little aggressive. If you had many layers of paint you could take a few layers off with 36 then finish the last few with 80 grit. I like to finish down to 240 grit, but read the tech sheet for the primer to get their recommendation.So if i am going the sanding route then i need 80 grit paper?Why not 40 or 36 grit will this leave to much for the primer to fill.If i go the stripper route then i must watch out for rust later down the years?The paint is a least 3 layers,maybe i should try the wire wheel?
hey JR how long did it take you to do it all by sand paper?
it looks great.
did you buy the sand papper in bulk?
if you do it by sand paper if you hit any areas with bondo.dont waste your sand paper trying to sand it off.take a heat gun to the bondo heat it up not too much and with a putty knife it will just pull away.
i tried to remove bondo with a da sander then a grinder.wow what a mess.then someone told me about heating it.wow it comes right off in chunks.no dust just sweep it up and in the garbage.
Thanks for the reply,i will strip the chevy ii with the airplane stripper and then use the da to remove the remaining paint.What about the plastic filler will the stripper soften it enough to remove or would you da it?Again thanks for your detailed reply i am getting impatient and want to get the chevy ready for paint
