The second round of fairing filler was ready for sanding, so that was my first task. Since the area was looking good, I took it through 120 grit, completing the sanding in this area and matching the other deck areas, which were ready for high-build primer.
After cleaning up the boat with vacuum and initial solvent wash, I covered the interior of the boat with plastic sheeting to protect it from overspray.
Later, I washed down the shop floor to still the dust and remove other debris, and finished up the basic prep work by preparing primer and spray equipment, and a final solvent wash with the paint system’s proprietary solvent designed for the purpose. With other commitments, it’d be a couple days before I could spray the primer, but everything was ready to go with minimal final preparations.
