Capeman,
The light grey is not hot on the feet. But being in Arizona that is the reason I went with white to keep the heat down. But the grey is just a tad grey, Enough to keep the glare at bay but not dark enough to make it hot.
Hope that helps.
I you want I can put some grey on some white and show you the difference???
Completed: FL14, OD18

Is the color or the gloss? On my jeep it was the gloss. some 400g wet paper fixed it...

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

I'm not going pure white on the paint, so a slightly darker/pigmented kiwi would be nice.

Looks like you've putting in the hard yards to get an improved interior finish. She's going to look pretty. :D

Well. I've sanded just enough to immediately start feeling aches and pains in my hands, back, and shoulders when I saw that pic. Impressive.

One last push after I relax a bit in the pool. Gave it a good 3 hours this morning until my shoulders started failing. There's some hand sanding where even the angle sander can't reach but I think I may finish this step today. Next is some epoxy in a few places where there wasn't glass below the paint and I went through the old epoxy, and along the bottom where the sanding roughed up the graphite. Then some fairing where I repaired the transom last year and the starboard bow where I tried to use the belt sander (actually, I did use it :help: ). Once satisfied, I plan to put new primer on everything, and then EMC topcoat. Hoping to NOT sand between primer and paint!
