Re: final sanding before paint ?
I just started using SPI products and they say to use their epoxy, thinned down for a final coat before color, a 'sandable' sealer. That makes good sense to me and I plan to do that.
I undestand that it fills, creates a barrier and a superior surface to apply color to.
Anyway, I always wet sand with a squee-gee about a square foot at a time, closely looking at the work and making sure there are no deep scratches or imperfections. I ALWAYS find some too. Much better to find them at this time than at any later. This is no time to be in a hurry. It's the final step in the preparation for paint, the most important aspect of a quality paint job.
