Spraying paint
« on: April 07, 2019, 07:40:18 PM »
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

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.

 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.

The cage is painted the same as the boat as is the motor and prop.
