While I'm waiting for the sandblaster to build up air pressure again, I'm wondering about how I'm going to paint the tank. I've got some universal bonding primer, which I plan to apply first, followed by some filler primer, then metallic white, topped with a high gloss clear coat. The issue I'm trying to figure out is sanding between coats, or sanding any imperfections in the gloss clear coat without messing up the glossy finish.
Anyone got a solid method for painting wood tanks without the grain?
And as if tonight couldn't get any crazier, I bought this bad boy from one of Dad's friends in between sandblasting passes. Spur of the moment thing, but the price was right, and I figure I could trade it for something I'd really like down the road.
