Need Bedliner Stock Finishing TipsJuly 14 2017 at 5:37 PM

My 3-decade old RWS 48 stock did not look presentable. I decided to take off the old finish with sandpaper but the sandpaper would not "bite" the wood. I scraped the finish with a knife blade.
Now I am ready to use bedliner on the stock. I read here in the Yellows to rough the wood with 100 or 120 sandpaper. As I mentioned earlier, the sandpaper just keeps sliding on the the wood and making surface slicker. I also read here to tape the inletted area with tape. I have seen some finished stock photos here that appear to show the bedliner finish blending where the wood meets the metal.
Please enlighten me on these two points. Thanks
