Cliff's project progress
The reason you sand down the edge of plexiglass (120 grit) is to eliminate stress risers. The same is true of metal and why you want to file out nicks in aluminum props.
If you fly a newly built plane before painting it you'll have a tough time getting paint to stick. The oil saturates the aluminum and you really can't get it all out.
