Start with 2 pack epoxy primer, rub it back with 180 grit. Next coat is 2 pack polyurethane primer. Rub that back with 240 grit. Boy, it's smooth by this stage. Then topcoat. Clarity is out of the water for a total refit, on top of a mountain here in Queensland, and we get breeze 9 days out of 10, so a sprayed finish is out of the question. Lots of work, but the paint is expensive, so that kind of balances out the equation. i think
I shot them an e mail but i still have not heard a word back from them on quantity vrs price.. So i have opted to go with the interlux and i just saw a boat with the top side redone via roll on and it looks great..
