Covering the details about painting

dissapointing, but...

This stage of the project hasn't quite gotten underway, but as soon as the spray starts hitting the glass I'll be updating asap. What I can tell you is what I plan to do. I'm going to suspend the boat from My forklift and wet sand the whole thing with 320 grit, then 400, then I'll spray the whole boat with gray primer before I shoot 3 coats of stark white on the hull. The rest of the standard paint scheme will be metalic green with coarse aluminum fleck (two coats).


Here is a photoshoped image of the boat looking about the same green I'm going to paint it, the apolstery and carpets will be gray though.
