ShopSmith repaint.
Thank You for the quick reply. Very good surgestions. I will get a respirator before I start. Thank You.
After the first sanding. Then the wipe down with mineral spirits. Do I let it evaporate? Then do I need water to get rid of any mineral spirits residue?
Would you recommend a coat of clear coat? How many coats of each paint would you recommend?
Again thank you for your help. I know next to nothing about spray painting.

John,

Where in central Florida you from? I went to HS at Merritt Island. I loved Florida. Get down there every few years.

Loved the fishing.
