- Oct 1, 2003Hello Richard
I occasionally repair sailplanes and sailing dinghies and when I finally
getting to the stage of respraying them I:
i) give them an undercoat of two-pack zinc chromate primer - this is epoxy
based that fills and sands (wet or dry) like a dream.
ii) top coat is a two-pack polyurethane or two-pack polyacrathane - colour
Of all the colours white is the hardest and longest lasting.
Don't skip the undercoat - if you do - you'll treble your sanding time.
Best sources would be a yacht chandler or maybe an auto body shop.
