Re: Topsides going from 'White' to flag blue

Using a RO sander is likely to leave highs and lows, esp if you're not careful how you try to take off high filler spots... don't ask how I know this....

I agree totally that if you want flag blue to look good the hull has to be PERFECT, esp if you're able to achieve a high gloss finish. You could try something like Whisper Grey.. a more forgiving colour but different enough to stand out amongst the other bleach bottles..
