If you're lucky sometimes alot can be scraped off...so test it ....sanding is to be avoided as its pretty Nasty stuff and gets everywhere!
Always use proper safety wear and take appropriate precautions.
That looks a Nice Job FS3!...
Agreed, I would recommend doing this off the trailer, I rolled mine off the trailer onto two fence posts and did one side at a time, lay some old sheets down as it is messy, get some good gloves, some breathing covers/ mask as this stuff stinks. two reasons for off the trailer, one it is very very messy and will make a mess of the trailer, and two off the trailer gets you better access to the hull, lying down though
, working around the rollers is not ideal.
The results I achieved were inter strip removal of the antifoul and then elbow grease with the polisher, again a messy job.
I also removed the old redbay graphics to refresh the hull and console, the newer red bays don't have these graphics on the hull anymore and I thought it looked cleaner.
For the thicker stuff apply the inter strip and when you can scrape some off but do this whilst the inter strip is still damp as it is still working and then you can wipe it off when you can, in my case the antifoul was blue and if your not careful you end up transferring the blue around. Don't be frightened of replacing the brush regularly stops the transfer.
