    The pictures make a great addition here. So generally speaking, start with 80 - 120 grit US?

    So today I was thinking about a primer coat. Thinking not doing cause I am absolutely anal about everything. Took all the badges off and license plate and lights etc. washed it good. Might sand but changed my mind after reading about the cheap TCP spray gun I bought last year. People saying that it is full of grease that needs to be cleaned out. No biggie 20 mins should be mint... WRONG. Can take everything apart but the air mixer part. Thing wont budge.

    I am on borrowed time man, powersource is bad in this PC so doing what I can.

    Heated it up with a torch and it came loose. It was held by loctite probably due to the surface of the sealing area. Inside... Yep full of grease. The seating surface is jacked so I filed it a bit and decided to use spray gasket for it to work.

    Anyways hopefully tomorrow I can sand and prime the trunk. Really want to get an idea how this new cheap china gun works. I used to have an old Dodge Boys gun from my uncle but some lowlife stole it. Just the handle, not the cup... whatever.
