Is This Prepped Well Enough For Rusto? (photo...)

Post by LV2DRFT on February 10th 2012, 5:05 pm

So I scuffed up my old paint with a wire drill bit (lightly, didn't press down hard out of fear).

This is what it looks like:






Is this good enough or should I scuff it further?

I would block sand the whole vehicle with 400-600 grit paper, the brush mark's will show in the final paint job, just my 2 cents

Thank you! I would have totally started painting! Should I dry or wet sand with 400-600?

Wet sand with 400 and a sanding block. Sand paper will load up too quickly if you dry sand.

Scratches from the wire brush will show through the paint if you don't do some sanding.
