If you're even going to attempt a project of this scale you may want to wait until you can do it the right way.

It's likely that the vast majority of the deck hardware needs to be re-bedded anyway. Done the right way this is a HUGE job and the "painting part" will only be about 20% of the total time. Prep work will and should consume about 80%. Also if you have any wet deck core now is the time to R&R it...

Trust me this is NOT a job you want to ever do twice!!!
