    Preping a ski for paint...

    How should I go about doing this? I already have all my plastics on my GPR off and I am going to take off the rub rails and mats in a couple of days. How should I prep the top and bottom hulls and also the interior of the ski for paint? I know I have to sand but what grit paper should I use? Also, I prefer to wet sand just because of the lack of dust. I just need to get off all the old paint and rough up the surface for the primer and then the paint. Also, what should I do to prep the fairings and little glove box cover for paint?

    What are you going to use for the plastic fairings? Are you wet-sanding?
