I’m refinishing a 1996 built in that is faded. It looks like this built in was stained and then sprayed with a poly, varnish or lacquer. Not sure which. I will be spraying 2 coats of SW Kem Aqua Plus Surfacer primer and then two coats of SW Kem Aqua Plus white. I have been prepping the surfaces by scuff sanding with 220 to ready for primer. Am I good with this or should I be using 150 then 220 after primer?

Maybe a picture would help. I am wondering whether scuff sanding with 220 got all the previous stain and poly off at all? When I refinished a stained and finished oak door, it took forever to get it back to the bare wood. I had to go all the way down to 80 grid for some areas (see this post).

I finished this project several months ago.

The regimen I prescribed above worked perfectly. Remember, this was a paint grade project.

I didn’t realize the post was that old… I just looked for unanswered post and tried to help.

Of course, if it is a paint grade project, then 220 will suffice!

Have your say...
