    Looking good V8. Don't listen to those guys teasing, their just 'green' with envy. You have to admit, after all the stripping don't it look good painted even in that color? I know what its like to step back and go Heck Yeah!

        Hello all, I have been reading the painting threads and did not find an answer. should I sand or scuff the ZC primer before I paint or just check to see if there is any bad spots and do the final paint.

          V8, I don't think we used the same type of ZC but all I did was wipe the boat down with a cloth towel. It was rough enough to remove the 'dust' and not remove any primer. It was then smooth, so it will be painted over.

            Your right FS my ZC is not pure ZC its a kinda hybrid and very smooth. I think I will go over it lightly with some scotchbrite just to be sure. I think I will do a test spot first to see how it works.

              Hello all, I got the final primer coat on today and with luck I will get the hull painted its final color next week. I also got the trailer disassembled and loaded on my car trailer for transport to the sand blaster tomorrow hope to have the boat flipped back over soon and working on the inside.

                  Wow V8, is that the primer coat or the paint? It looks too shiny to be primer. So you are multitasking huh? You going to have the trailer AND the boat done by next weekend? Where do you find time to eat?

                      Thanks for the kind words guys. I call it primer but its really POR-15 paint but you have to put a top coat on it because its not UV resistant. the top coat is also POR paint but its called flex coat and was made for marine applications mainly salt water and comes in many colors. I am going to paint my hull bright white and the top will be a royal or lighter blue.

                        Hello all, great day 70 degrees and low humidity so its painting time. I got the first coat of white on the hull and waiting for it to dry. I am now thinking that I should have cut the decking before I flipped it to paint and I could have worked on that while waiting oh well here are some pictures.

                              Perhaps you stated before, but are you rolling or spraying?
