Remove old painted name from hull
I'm ready to remove the old name from the boat. Unfortunately (for me), it was painted on, and I'm trying to make sure I am removing it in the best way.
What I had decided on was this:
- Wash/Scrub the stern with a heavy duty cleaner that should strip any wax remaining
- Slowly and gently sand with 1000 grit paper with a random orbital sander until most of the lettering is gone
- Do the same with 1600 grit until the remainder is removed
- same grit to rest of stern
- Apply Vinyl lettering
- Next week, wax again
Does this sound right, or am I out of whack here?
Also, is the 1000 grit too coarse and the 1600 grit fine enough?
Thanks for any input!
