Wood - Surface to be painted should be clean and dry, free from dust, dirt and other foreign matter. Hammer all nails deep enough to apply putty. Sand rough wood until smooth, then dust off before painting.

If repainting, first remove all blistering, peeling and scaling paint by wire brushing or BOYSEN® Paint and Varnish Remover #141. Clean thoroughly prior to painting.

Metal - Wipe the surface with rag soaked in paint thinner to remove dust, dirt, grease, oil, wax and other foreign matter. For new G.I. sheets, etch the surface by applying 10% BOYSEN® Metal Etching Solution #71 (dilute 1 part of B-71 to 9 parts water).

If repainting, wire brush or scrape rusted metals and apply BOYSEN® Metal Etching Solution #71 to remove all rust. Let it stay for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to wash off surface thoroughly with water, letting it dry before applying paint. Primer should be applied immediately after treatment.
