    Undercoat needed for ply?

    Ho hum, wife's a teacher & has been seconded to paint the scenery for the upcoming Summer Production, so guess who she seconded? :( So...they have bought some (approx) 6'6" x 4' flats of ply to attach to a frame & paint. Fair enough but will this need some sort of primer or undercoat...

    Hotpoint Aquarius DF62 dishwasher

    oK, gotcha (I think) : ) Thanks. Will give it a whirl - I have just been commandeered to do ano important electrical job: the Christmas lights first ! Let you know how I get on. Would that ( if the matrix is gunky) also prevent it from a rinse 'fill' though ?
