I am getting ready to repaint some parts of my plane with a different color but have no intention of stripping the entire plane of the base white paint. Not being a painter I'd like some advice from the painting gurus out there. I think the current paint on the plane is a single stage because when I wet sanded a test area with 1200 grit sand paper the color came off and if it were a bc/cc paint I would have expected only the clear to come off. So my question is if there is any way to tell what kind of paint was used, enamel, acrylic, or urethane? I will be using a primer/sealer before painting on the new color and not sure what types of primer/sealer and paint I should use.
