    Have a body from GFS , I'm refinishing
    In the process off sanding off the finish I've gone thru the sealer in several spots.

    Can I just touch up the sealer ,or should I sand it all off and reapply a new sealer ?

    any advice is appreciated thanks

    Welcome to the world of finishing.

    In some cases it's a case of sand it all off and start again. Depends what products you're using, but this is usually the case.

    Using Krylon Spray cans , and I have no idea what the body is sealed with.

    Probably go with the sand it all off , this is the second go round with this body
    first one looked great (just ruffed the finish) but I rushed the clear ,and it didn't cure. So I sanded it down to wood for this go.

    I'm thinking of using a stain and paint combination so I'll probably have sand out the sealer any ways.
    Thanks
