don't look to close :lol: (we fished too long ) painting in the middle of winter were having a great time fishing ,bloody frezzing ice on the yaks in the morning.

came in after 1 pm then had to mask everything up and paint two coats before the sun went down.
Just made it before the due set in Awesome job

very very happy.
will always remember that day .
Fantastic to have kayak fishing mates like pointloader and others I have meet on this forum :y:
Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

I was thinking something along the lines of Rob Forts artwork or perhaps some of the scenery from the charity yakkers trip.
Kinda' like a tatoo of something special / personal to yourself.
Obviously would cost more but would certainly look cool.

Painting in progress, they could not put it in the oven since heat might damage the fibreglass and also create bubbles. So a slow drying process in order, expect to have it back sometimes this week :D

Hey Ali

Sorry, I know this was a while ago, but just wondering if you could expand on the paint you used in the end and the prep required etc.

How have you found the durability?

Hi mate. Pointloader recommend PPG Dulon 2K Automotive Enamel so on it went. Prep is easy, lots of standing. I would spend more time on prep next time as some Deep scratches show below the paint. But overall pretty happy with the finish. Durability is been good although I have been extra careful and it hasn't got much used this summer due to so many horse in the stable

That's great news that you've been pretty happy with it.

Did PL do the spraying for you, or did you get a local car painter (or similar) to do it?
