You'd need an oven big enough to hold the boat so it's not likely. It isn't a paint, it's a thermoplastic that is electrostatically attached and then "melted" on in the oven.

I've also heard of people painting their boat with automautive paint, but I don't know with what results and I've never actually seen one. Cheers Pierre
Yes you have - two part polys are used on lots of cars & trucks. IIRC Imron was developed for the heavy truck industry.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
