Why not SSPC SP 16 as the surfaces are largely non ferrous ?, I have seen the kinetic energy of large grit and high pressures sometimes used with SP 7 for production purposes greatly affect the adhesion of the existing aged alkyd coating brittle condition, resulting in continued poor adhesion.

So bottom line who pays for all additional work?
