Back in the day, the best practice was to acid wash the hull to get the lime leachate out, pressure wash it to get rid of the acid, let it dry thoroughly and then coat it with 2 or 3 coats of epoxy resin - not much different than doing an exposed aggregate driveway. ;)

After that, you can paint it with whatever. It's a good idea to use low or semi-gloss paint because ferro hulls are rarely fair enough for a high gloss to look good.

If you want to fill and fair it so it WILL support a high gloss finish, put the filler on after the epoxy sealer coats. Use talc thickened epoxy for filler
