    Default Paint advice is hard to find.

    I'm attempting to restore this hull, I don't know what kind of paint was used!! Should I sand all of it off? The spots that are left are low(obviously) can they stay before I primer? Seems to have stuck well and looks like no primer was used before they painted. Also the cracks pictured they go away if I sand down to bare glass but will the primer be able to be built up as thick as original gell? To get the area flat again, the yellow is about a big sixteenth thick, Most of them are on the leading edge of the cap, or do I need to take everything down to bare glass? Was also wondering is there a "rattle can Epoxy primer" for the rookie to practice with? Thanks as always. johnf

    First off , general rule of thumb is , if low fill , and if high sand , and with that in mind have you given any thought on what primer you might want to use , and might i recommend using Express Composites' line of Duratec Products which now is 10 dollars more a gallon , and still the best price anywhere which can be sprayed 50 mill's wet on wet - white - 714-002
