Hey guys, I'm thinking about painting my trailer next week, not a lot of experience and I know I need to sand, but do I need to sand down the whole trailer or just the rust spots? It's currently black and I'm just going to paint it black again.

Thanks,
Caleb

I just painted my trailer today, We do it every 2 years. if the rust spot are bad hit them with sand paper, No need to sand the entire trailer. Just clean it up real good so your not spraying over rust.

We have been using this paint for years and love it. Its hammered black.


Also buy 1 of these to make it easier


Depending how bad the trailer is count on using 8-10 cans to do 2-3 coats.

Here is mine all painted up today.

Alright, I'll go buy that stuff! Did y'all just use a wire wheel to sand it? That's what I was planning on using...

thanks for your help
