I started by sanding everything to rough it up a bit and remove Any varnish / oil That Was left. Then I could prevail on everything. The wood paneling Was the easy part. I used Kilz 2 qui worked fine and is a lot less than Fumey Kilz Original. I tried the Kilz 2 on the trim, purpose It Was not strong enough to block the wood tannins from bleeding through (even after-3 coats) so I got some Kilz Original and that worked great. It's based oil and smells horrible, it does the job intended. Open the harbor lights and wear a respirator Otherwise it will Kilz you ...
And just in case your husband is 6'4 "and is Typically covered in oil / grease / diesel, cleans it all up very Easily with a Clorox wipe.
