|primed, still wet|
Prime, Sand, Prime, Sand
Like the heading says, I laid two coats of primer (Kilz latex) and wet sanded with 600-grit between and after. Like before, I added some dish soap to the water in hope of getting more dust off. The end result looks and feels very smooth. The minor scratches have been mostly filled in by the primer, though the nicks and dings are still there. It's easy to get all perfectionist on this stuff! Figure, this will never be a trailer queen or even a just-on-nice-days bus. We camp. We go to concerts and tailgate. It's gonna get scratched, so let it be. The picture that's second from the bottom shows the steps after 2 coats of primer, wet-sanding and then towel-drying.

Next up, more wet sanding then more paint, more color sanding then polishing. We'll see how far along I get before this post actually makes it out (I've been updating and re-updating for over a week:-) ). More next time, and thanks for following along.
