    I just sanded mine down and taped it off. But we were in the middle of a total overhaul when we did that (No motor, no mats) which made it alot easier to handle. You can use regular auto paint but on the lower part of the hull you have to mix some flexor into the paint b/c hulls are constantly expanding and contracting. Some might argue that but hey I have seen some....... well, some nice crack work. Mine holds up great. I'm about to redo my other ski, but IDK what it will be. Only need one AMPenergy ski. And mine only cost $600 and was done by a pro.

    I think I am going to go with the Dupli Color "Paint Shop" stuff. Already mixed, and ready to go in 1/2 quart cans... I am only doing the topside, though... The bottom is fine... I will have the thing completely stripped. As of now, there is no engine, and no mats...
