Question

is this stripping job ready for repainting?


this is the metal fire door on my shed. i used 4 little cans of Smart Strip, which works OK on flat surfaces but not too well in corners. i was wondering if i am ready to reprimer and repaint at this point, i.e. whether the little imperfections are gonna show too bad.

thanks

Looks like you are getting close. You need to get all that stripper off and do a little sanding. You will need to prime before painting.

are you sure this white stuff is the stripper? i thought it might be the primer. if it is the stripper indeed, do you think it's bad if i don't completely scrub/sand it off? cause it is one major grueling task to do...

Ama, the white stuff does look like primer. Follow the instructions on the label for removing/neutralizing the stripper. A palm sander with some 80 weight paper will remove/feather the remaining stuff down to almost invisible under the new finish.
