Marine Paint vs Automotive
I am getting ready to paint my top deck and was wondering the differences in Marine vs Automotive paints. I plan on a one stage white for the top deck. Also how much paint will I need? I will be shooting it through an old skool Binks gun with a 2qt pressure pot. The ski is about the size of an RXT. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I used less then a qt. on all my red on the MSX. Personally I used a 2 part urathane enamel(paint/hardner). I have used the interlux marine before and did not like it. I really think you want to use something with a hardner with it. Imron use to be a brand name used alot. I have shot a color coat before and use a clear 2 part over it and loved the depth look it gave.

Hit the paint store and had a long chat ended up with the imron.

I am trying my best on spraying a GPR. I finished the lower hull and let it dry a couple days. Flipped the hull and started to spray the primer coat. Someone forgot to cover the lower hull before starting the top. Now I have a fine mist of primer on my finished lower hull. Is there anything I can do to save my finished work on the bottom? I was thinking of a rubber wheel on a drill, but I wanted to research before doing anything, especially chemicals. I need help. It is starting to cost as much as a professional job. HELP. --J

Imron is the most durable paint on the market. Very hard to get painters to us it though.
