This is the old, crusty zolatone paint that I was dreading having to remove. How on earth was I going to get in all those crevices? Not to mention how was I going to find paint stripper that could take this stuff off and how much was it going to cost!
Enter the sandblaster!
So so sooo much better! I love the way the metal sparkles with the finish the sandblaster leaves. I have already done this to all the window trim so I knew it wouldn't destroy the metal.
I don't know if you can see it or not, but the metal sparkles now! I also tried this technique under the drip caps where I had already spent several frustrating hours with sandpaper and a scraper.
20 seconds is all it took, saving me HOURS of finger-stubbing madness with ever shrinking chunks of sandpaper. Whether or not this will polish to a mirror finish, I don't much care. At least the crud is gone. Oh! Speaking of vanishing crud...
You guessed it...more sandblasting! It also takes the black adhesive off the inside of the trailer quite nicely, although I probably won't bother since it is getting covered anyway.
