Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Was thinking of going with a sea foam color, enhancer says don’t spray but I would assume a good respirator will keep the bad stuff out. :doh:

All that will be painted is the white strip left.
Picture was before decal removed and Gelcoat was sanded.

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Sounds good, thanks Fuzz. I got it ready for paint, what I read is no primer is needed to go over Gelcoat?? Your thoughts. The Pettit is the Easypoxy, but they make an additive for it “Performance Enhancer” everything I have read about is it's basically a hardener. :doh: I plan on spraying it!!

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Also I’m still stuck on topside paint, kinda leaning towards the Pettit with the added hardener, kinda somewhat makes it a two stage.

I’m open for suggestions :doh:

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Fuzz, been busy with ranch work. Thanks for checking in. It’s funny because I was just fixing to ask a question about the epoxy bottom, If I wet sand the bottom and leave it dull will it hurt anything or cause a failure?? Reason asking is I cannot get it to lay out flat as I would like and a portion...

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Thanks fuzz, Sounds like a plan!! Plan on sanding it tomorrow and try to get the last coat on. ??? Any thoughts on paint, boat will remain on the trailer most of the time. Longest in the water would be 2-3 days max. I have some two part commercial garage/sidewalk epoxy with UV, I thought I would do ...

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

I assumed sanding would also dull it?

If you just wet sand to dull it will that affect the strength or abrasion resistance?

Thanks

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Thanks fuzz, Got a couple coats down. Looks ok a little rough but I bet it’s tougher than gel coat :doh: used a torch to remove bubbles, still got little graphite specs. Tried sifting as well a little better!! 2F89909C-AB0E-4583-8693-160937F9459F.jpeg 78B0907E-55BC-4A1A-A1BC-11B153495175.jpeg Is the...

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

Thanks Fallguy, No worries, just doing it in thin layers. Looks like I’m going to have to sand it as the graphite is a little rough. I’m thinking of just wet sanding the final coat. Not really to concerned with the bottom finish as it will get scuffed up anyway :D Main concern is a thick layer for p...
