Do I have to sand this down to bare metal?

This is proving to be quite time consuming.. I've already went through 3 sanding pads.

I would just sand until smooth and repaint. Going to metal id only do if there's a need

Yeah, I usually only sand until the paint is smooth and roughened up for the new paint to stick. Can't wait to see this repainted and the lamps cleaned up though.

Yeah I've never sanded down to metal. too much work! lol. I just sand the top layer of filth off with some steel wool (both steel wool and fixture are soaked with the hose repeatedly throughout) and then rise, dry in the sun, and painted.

I always used Rust-Oleum Gloss Enamel paint for my fluorescent lights. "White" for the white areas obviously and "Smoke Gray" for the gray areas. "Smoke Gray" is almost an exact match for the gray used by most manufacturers. I also use it when I (rarely) repaint disconnect switches and breaker panels.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.
