    I used brightside marine paint on mine and it worked great. It is a single part urethane, I also used a high solids automotive clear urethane over the black and airbrush work on top with no problems.

    Per diggers advice, I also used the brightside. It looked great even though it was my first time painting.

    I'm about to paint my 550 with brightside, did you prime it first with the "Pre-Kote" ?
