I am thinking about buying a Biesemeyer Daycruiser from a friend of mine. The boat is in fair condition and has a monster of a driveline. V drive with a chevy 427! It is colored the ever so popular 70's Brown on white =(. I was wondering what it would take money wise or work wise to get the thing re-gel coated or whatever i can do to chage the color. My money tree is rather small so anything i can do to save a few bucks im willing to do. If i buy this boat i plan to keep it awhile so i want it to look good and hold up over time. I also would like to do some patterns in the new paint/gel coat so im wondering if this takes the price way up rather then going with a solid color and also how much of this can i do in my driveway? If its not a good idea for me to attempt this myself im located in southern Ca, maybe someone can recomend some professionals who specialize in this feild that wont completly drain my bank account. Thanks in advance for all advice givin, it is much appreciated!
