We painted our old Perkins4-108 nine years ago (repowered last year-but the old Perkins was still pretty when we donated it)
The two tips I gave on the last thread I think are worth repeating...
1. Use aluminum foil to mask off hoses and wiring you do not want to get paint on. MUCH easier to handle and shape than using plastic and tape and very easy to remove.
2. For areas you need to use a brush-spray the paint in an old container then use the brush to dab it on. There are those places where spraying just isn't a good option.
3. Spend most of your time prepping-it makes a huge difference in the final product.
