    need suggestions-colors for 01 RX

    I just made a photoshop template so I can screw with all the colors on my 2001 RX. Layers include the seat, top of the hull, (graphics have been erased), bottom half of the hull, the whole hood, the black plastic piece that houses F/N/R, the big black plastic handle behind the seat, and the seadoo graphic on the bottom half of the hull.

    I think I'm going to paint this thing in the spring....so...I need color scheme ideas! Something NOT mainstream.

    ALSO....am I crazy to try painting this thing myself? CAN you paint it?

    Flat black could cause you some problems. They get extremely hot as they keep soaking up the sun. I would suggest looking into some candy apple colors or pearls. That would keep things a lot cooler and still look killer on and off the water. I have used PPG for well over a decade and if you go to your local dealer, ask to see the Radiance 2 catalog. It's been out for a few years and I still buy them. You can combine a couple colors together that are complementing, then finish everything off with light coats of clear and keep building it up so it's really deep. My van is candy red and ski candy/Indy green. Turns a lot of heads .) If you want some technical help doing this yourself, I may be able to offer a little info based on my experiences. And remember, the base coat/primer stage is the most important.

    Some nice colors here, I like some of the bright orange (California and Hugger)and the metallic orange also there not very common. I would like to see some combinations like electric blue and firemist orange or california orange with reflex blue. That would look so cool

    Sidefx, will this type of paint stick good to gelcoat?
    I think there mostly Acrylic Enamal?
