Amen to that!!! All my fish eye problems disappeared after I started
washing everything first with a strong dishwashing detergent, it's my
very first thing before anything. Good advice.

I just bought some Roloc discs and a high speed air sander (1800 rpm)
because Bondoking swears it strips quicker than anything. I can't
wait to try it on an upcoming boat trailer. I'm told it's twice as fast
as using a DA. Anyone else have this experience? This thread sounds
like a good match for this tool which isn't very expensive.
