Question Edson Pedestal Paint?

I'm looking for suggestions for painting an Edson pedestal. I initially was going to have it powder coated but I don't see the need?

I believe it's an aluminum housing, Edson uses a baked on Urethane Finish. Do you think I must use a "marine" type finish such as Interlux Perfection or Brightside, or would something compatible with aluminum from a hardware store work fine? I suppose the two part Perfection paint would be the most durable next to powder coating?

What have you used and liked?

Also, my compass (Ritchie) has some distortion on the glass, any suggestions for having it refurbished? Where/who?

I need to replace the aluminum bolts, Edson sells them @ $12.00 a piece, wtf? http://www.edsonmarine.com/marinesto...oducts_id=1152

Thanks

Re: Edson Pedestal Paint?

You might check at an automotive paint store. I had to make a new support for our binnacle guard and had the shop match the color of the pedestal. They had a primer for aluminum and a clear protective coat finish to go over it (spray cans). Much more durable products than regular spray paint. You might be able to find a stock white that matches the Edson, I had to have a custom spray can made up which was more expensive, but still not too bad.

Re: Edson Pedestal Paint?

I used white brightsides on mine.. I did wipe it down and scrub it real well with 400 grit w/d paper. 3 yrs now it's moldy but not pealing in anyway.

Re: Edson Pedestal Paint?

Edson has paint that matches the original. All I needed was some touch up and they gave me a small bottle at the Annapolis boat show a couple years ago. It was a one part paint in a small bottle with a brush built into the cap. The color match was perfect. It is actually hard to match white paint.

Re: Edson Pedestal Paint?

When I removed the pedestal during the re-core of the deck three years ago, I sanded it off well, down to 400 grit, primed it with Rustoleum and painted with white semigloss Rustoleum flit cans. It has held up well so far. Guess I could have broken out the spray gear and spent a lot of money on Awlgrip or even a good automotive paint but for about $15, the thing looks good.

Re: Edson Pedestal Paint?

I'll second the Rustoleum tip. I used Rustoleum Industrial white on my Edson Binnacle base and on the Bomar Hatches. I sanded to 220, then 320 grit, wiped with lacquer thinner and then primed with Rustoleum Industrial primer. No flaking or fading after 4 years. Wonderful stuff, cheap and available at the big box stores.

Our Edson Binnacle is the old style black. I used the is Interlux Brightside and only bought one quart and applied it with foam brushes while in place. Did this last May and looked great through the season and looks like new still.

I also second J Gordon on the Ritchie repair. I took mine there and for less than $100 they reconoditioned it to new.
