Seeing as the bathtub was covered in dog, I decided to start on the bodywork for the car, beginning again with the replacement (used) trim pieces that were missing from mine.
800-grit paper and the shower running cold water.. perfect for bodywork prep!
Half an hour later I’ve rubbed back all the cracked, dry paint where it had gone bad and keyed the rest.
Seems like a long time, but most of the time spent on paint is in the preparation. This is very true.
