What did you use to get in all the nooks and tight spots to sand the texture away from the floorboards? I need to do this on a car I'm working on.
That's a good question Jesse. I used a sanding stick as far as possible. To get right into the nooks I used a combination of two methods...
1) Cut a pies of fresh 320 grade wet & dry paper with scissors for sharp edge and sand as far as possible into the edge. This is difficult as it is impossible to apply pressure over the last 1-2mm (not with the size of my banana fingers), so you have to rely on the rigidity of the we & dry paper.
2) I use a No 17 Xacto blade (flat square head - like a chisel). This is held perpendicular to the textured surface and gently scraped side to side. This is a really good way of getting right in to corners and giver a real sharp edge. I used this method to carve the detail into the underside of the hood too.
Hope this works for your project Jesse.
