 O0 That sounds like a real good paint job, D!

 I used to spray paint for a living for several companies and it sounds like you are doing a great job. When I painted for GE we had the best of equipment. I timed my paint 18-21 in 5 gallon pots. What we used was auto paint for indoor and outdoor switchgear. It was painting steel, no aluminum. The finished switchgear had to be as good as a finished automobile.

I sure would like to see the Waterbug. You have sure put your heart into the build and I really like it.

Dang I sure had to thin it to spray.
One quart was not enough to prime it all in side and out.

I got all the aluminum stuff primed and a lot of the wood, floor/ sides.

I had some rust oleum all metal primer in similar gray so I did the iron and rest of the wood in that.

Next step I'll do all the out side in flat "Bay Gray", like a dark battle ship gray.

I'll have to do the in side with the "Sand" color .

The plan is to make "Cattails? on the out side

I have dead grass color and the sand, and a spray can of "Cattail" brown for the "Heads"

I was going to do a pebble look in side but the paint ran out .

 Maybe with a rattle can.

I cleaned up the water bug today , sprayed her down with a vinegar  bath and taped up her important parts.
Let it all air dry in our 30 mph wind.

The wife made me tarp off the big boat , she was afraid the over spry may make her shiny Hewescraft my get a camo paint job too.?????

The primer I got is " Parkers" aluminum boat primer, as well as the flat camo paint, just an old school enamel paint.

Should be easy to put on, we will see.

The primer is light gray, I also got Bay gray, dead grass, sand tan , and cat tail brown, all quarts ,sept the cattail it is one spray can.

In the morn the wind will be light and the temp needs to be above 40*, should be. I'll prime EVERY thing Motor, wood parts, steel parts and the Aluminum hull inside and out.

The bottom has "slick" paint on it now , that will stay the same.

Wish me luck , If there is any primer left I'll do the trailer too

 :) O0 That's nice, a fill-in between sets, D. They are all pretty hungry now, I would think. Are you getting a lot of snow melt right now?

Does it ever seam to bother the gophers or Prairie dogs after you call 20 minutes for coyotes?
 I never saw much change. This time of year after a call set, we will snipe the little critters for a bit then move on to the next set

Nope, 24/7 /365.
 Coyotes don't get a brake  :knuppel2

  O0 That's good, D! Somebody needs to be after them. They must be pretty hungry with all that snow on and should be having young to defend and feed soon, I bet.
