What grade sandpaper would you recommend to remove rust from the goal prior to painting?

One question: Do you have to use Photodelux to make the stencil? Can you use something else?
Remember people......Spray paint dries within 24 hours but can take up to 10 days to cure. You will definitely ruin your nice new paint job if you don't let it cure.

nice work, I like the colours

an alternate method for creating a stencil can be found on step 3 here

note it reduces the underspray problem and no taping. You can get really detailed stencils using thin paper and spray tack.
