Need Help with painting my GPR
Guys I had to epoxy a couple of holes in the bottom and fill a bunch of rock chips and stuff On the bottom of my hull. My question is I have some small pin holes in the marine tex. So what do I fill that with and then what type of primer do I use?
This is all i have to do to paint it and start the motor install, so any help would be awesome.

? Glass? I bought this ski like this. I do not beach my ski's at all, so no need for Rhino linner. I just want a perfect gloss black bottom.

colorrite has different options for touch-up paint
also i've heard most use marine-tex to fill chips but i'm sure bodyfiller will hold also
but, i have not used colorrite products yet maybe someone else can chime in on its color match and ease of use!

for "large " pinholes fill w/marine tex only, rule of thumb-if primer won't fill pin hole, marine tex; then block sand, primer and block sand...

You can use automotive polyester putty, works great. It comes in a quart plastic squeze container, just squeze out and then mix in the hardener. I filled gouges on the bottom of my GPR with it and never had a problem without even painting it. It sands very easy which is a big plus. You want to prime it with an automotive urethane 2 part primer. Then paint with an automotive urethane enamel.
