paint work question
guys has anyone ever seen a gpr paint blister in the foot wells both sides,
pulled the mats off to get top deck painted and its even under orignal mats??,the small bump/blisters seem hard but as yet not had a dig about,

mine has it also.when water lays on gel-coat it permiates it and causes water blisters.i've seen this also on fiberglass bath tubs that have sat with water in them for long periods of time.>scott

On the bathtubs we would break the blister and water would come out(fiber glass is not water proof without a gel-coat finish and water will break it down)but i'm not sure how it effects sheet mold compound?I'm not too concerned on ski i just use touch-up paint as they break!>scott
P.S. I have also seen this happen with paints and epoxies used to refinish bath tubs,mainly when a bath mat is left in the tub and holds water under it. it will blister then peel!

Mine had the same problem on one side. I sanded the footwell area down and filled with Marine-Tex. Finish that off smooth and it's ready to prime/paint.
