    painting questions please chime in if you have custom paint

    so i have a friend who is a really good motorcycle and automotive painter ( sick with the airbrush) i was thinking of doing a whole paint job on my hull but am afraid since ive read you need to use marine paint or gelcoat on the bottom... whos runing regular automotive paint like nice ppg stuff our house of kolors? how does it hold up and what should i use or not use.. please list pros and cons.. im new to boats and would love to hear some answers from people with some of these bad ass custom paint jobs on how they hold up and what was done special if anything... convince me so i dont just paint the cowls &have some airbrushing done to the top half to cover my flaws lol
