So after reading all the posts, it looks as though the process should be as follows. Please let me know if this looks ok:

- Clean w TSP Substitute
- Lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper
- Wipe with denatured alcohol
- Coat with Zinsser 123
- Two coats Benjamin Moore Super White Semi-Gloss White

Sound good?
you got it

That's great but probably overkill.

You can probably cut steps/money by using something like a deglosser/cleaner, or a gripping primer.

I love BIN (also like the way it smells BTW, but YMMV), but the main problem with it is extreme splatter. It drips everywhere and easily. Other than that it works great for me every time.

Are you trying to say SuperSpec instead of Super White? You said "super white" and then "white" so I don't know what you mean. SuperSpec isn't great paint.

Yes, so what type of paint is it? Not what brand, we know that is BM. And we also know the color.

It looks like the original poster has decided not to use Bin which is almost certainly a good choice. But as someone who uses Bin entirely too often and when it is completely unnecessary (I think I am addicated to the smell or something), has anybody else tried using undiluted Krud Kutter to clean their brushes afterwards? I was just using cheap brushes and throwing them away because I didn't like using denatured alcohol or ammonia and I didn't find it worked very well, but when I used krud kutter straight out of the jug the brushes practically cleaned themselves. I even took one that had dried with Bin on it over night and was able to clean it out back to looking almost new. I am thinking there must be some kind of downside to doing this as it is so easy and works so well.

I would never use ammonia when I can use alcohol because of the smell. But the Krud Kutter idea sounds like a good one to keep in mind if the need arises....

Hmm. I will also have to check that out.

I have a tall sport bottle that I keep a BIN brush in with a bit of denatured. Ready to go for a quick spot prime.
( Do the same for the Universal SS Shellac)
