frame paint removal

Post by wild4679 » July 8th, 2019, 6:49 pm

I am about to prepare the frame on my '31 for repainting. Is it necessary to remove the existing paint to bare metal and start over? Or, can the prep be limited to removing loose paint and using a pre-paint wash? If the paint must be removed, what have others done to make this easier? I have the option of hauling the frame to a sandblaster, and could I could have it done for under a couple hundred bucks.

Note: A quick pass through my shop and one would realize I'm not a perfectionist.
