Painting 3M 5200

Does anyone have some info about painting 5200 for UV protection? Type of paint and any primers necessary? I don't want to get into any discussion about the cons of using 5200 since the deed has already been done and is holding up well around the chain plates and sampson posts, but some of the caulk is exposed to sun and that needs protection.

I would advise thinning a small amount of the same 3M-5200 with acetone and applying it to renew the surface. An application like these will renew the 5200 surface for another five years! 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
