Paint Damage

Post by Drey » Fri, 08 Aug 1997 04:00:00


I have a '95 Seatrend Accelerator. The paint chipped off near the nose so
I can now see the epoxy. I was wandering if I could fix it so it looks
like nothing ever happened there. I have tried to paint it with spray
paint and it still looks very bad.
Is there material that I could use to fill in the spot? And maybe then
spray paint it?

I also have a '95 seatrend with paint chip problems. I found using a
white marine undercoat paint (avialible at most marine stores) worked
pretty well for painting the chipped areas. This stuff is pretty thick
and sandable so it fills the chip areas nicely and can be sanded flush
with the non chipped area. I used a foam brush to apply it. The color
match wasn't exact with the Seatrend finish so I sprayed some areas
after with white auto primer spray paint and then lightly sanded for a
good match. Usually I would just leave the marine undercoater and not
mind the slight mismatch in color, Its better than huge chip holes.

Contact Alan, at The Water Planet http://www.thewaterplanet.com

I saw a Seatrend that he had repaired, and I was unable to tell that
it had been repaired.
