Sanding/Painting a trailer

Polaris4252010-08-07 22:23:33 +0000 #1
I have a 16' utility trailer that could really use a paint job. Anyone ever had one sand blasted & painted? If so what did it cost? I dont really want to drop much more $ into it, since I'm already going to have to replace the floor. There's no way around that. Im seriously considering just getting out the grinder w/ a wire wheel and going over it, then rattle can it w/ primer and paint.

Go at it with the grinder. They take paint off ridiculously quick, and for a trailer a rattle can paint job is all that you will need.

Just saw on a trailer forum people suggesting Rustoleum Brush/roll on Paint. They say it's thick & goes on smooth & easy & holds up well. Think I might try it.

after u get the paint off put "acid cure" on it .its a rust killer and works kinda like a primer also. that way when u paint it the job will last a little longer.this stuff is really good for thehard to get to areas.

Yeah I'll have to wipe it down w/ acetone or something.
