  • My Rustoleum paint Job. + new seats

    Hello all. Just thought i would stop by and share my latest project. Boat is a 1979 Checkmate Trimate II. Was painted with the roll and tip technique using thinned gloss black rustoleum and majic hardener from TSC. The red was taped off and sprayed with a rustoleum rattlecan. also some pics of new rear seats i built and upholstered (no-sew)

          Dude!... your boat has gills!
          I consider overkill a job well done... plus a little extra.

          There's as many ways to do something as there is people to tell you how to do it... but not all of them are the right way.

          The drinking and debauchery will continue until morale improves... and maybe for a little while after.

              haha, the raised sections in the fiberglass molds lend themselves to be in a different contrasting color, at least i thought.

                    Hey, I may not love the colors, but you did a great job shooting it! It looks fabulous, and if you & your's like the combo, great! Well done!

                    The raised fiberglass areas weren't contrasted in gel originally? It doesn't look like it in your 1st pix, but it does look like they might have been covered w/ vinyl/sticker/decals:



                    Did the hardener bring up the sheen/gloss level on the black? It often does... And you did wear an iso rated respirator when shooting the paint w/ hardener? Correct?

                    The merc getting similar attention & paint?

                    Seats all look good too, nice job!

                      the raised areas were not originally contrasted in color. The original colors were a metalic black with a metallic red strip that went ~6" below and above the rub rail. The original gel is very pretty when it's in good shape. However, this boat spent way too many years neglected under the sun. The gel was sadly beyond saving. Also, i do like the colors, but i also chose the colors because the original title has the original colors on it and i did not want to run into issues with that discrepancy if and when i sell the boat. i believe the hardener brought out some more gloss, but it is hard to say as i do not have anything to compare it to without hardener. Also, it has yet to be buffed, going to wait at least 30 days before hitting it with a buffer and polishing compound. That was my first ever go at building/upholstering seats but i am very satisfied with the results- for an amateur. Funny you should ask about the motor, the cowlings are sitting in my garage now waiting to be stripped. Thank's for your kind words!

                            Great job checkmate. There is no better way to spent winter time off than working on a boat.

                              Very respectable job you did on that baby, with paint, we all know it's about the prep, and your boat looks great. I would hate to use live bait of any kind with the white interior, but it looks just great!! Depending on where you are the dark color on the boat could be a scorcher, but that isn't a sun bathing boat anyways. Go fast and enjoy the nice new ride!
