How much do I sand a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe when doing a make over?

by Debbie

I am painting a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe. It's used & has some rough, beat up areas on it. Do I sand & sand & sand to get the rough or scratched areas smother, or let them rough?

Thank you.

    I would sand enough so you have a surface with a little bite for the paint to stick. When you say it has some beat up areas do you mean beat up as in deep gashes or beat up being just well used but not trashed?

      Thank you for answering! Beat up as some gashes or deep scratches. And I don't know what the heck kids do to these things but some areas are roughed up, like the plastic is roughed up as if someone took a super gritty sandpaper to it but never sanded it smooth.

    I would just sand the rough spots enough to keep them from scratching.

    I have spray painted a little tykes playhouse before and the paint adhered beautifully. As far as the scratches I would consider just painting right over it if you like a distressed look.
