I don’t have much experience removing paint from metal objects and then repainting them. If I remove all the japanning I can from my plane and the remaining japanning feels smooth and won’t come off even with sandpaper, is it safe to paint over? If I use paint, should I use a base coat first? If I do true jappaning, can I put the new coat(s) right over the old stuff? I don’t mind coating over the old bits of japanning, as long as the new coat (paint or japanning) will adhere to it as well as to the bare metal.
