    Default Hey Five-O or someone: question about Evercoat Feather Fill or G2 topcoat

    Great primer filler and strong for boat bottoms with ample repaired spots. I am having fits with my supplier of PPG products and they tell me I need to use Gel Coat ONLY! What? I want the dull gold color of it to stay and just shoot some clear over it and the rest of the original metal flake, can I use the Duratek clear used on the floors? There are also some stripes that would be bad if it bled through. Normal clear does not hurt the stripes on a test. I assume i can so where can i locate some up here in the Northwest? What final grit is preferred? I am at 400 wet presently and dont want a show quality job but a good sticking finish. Anyone?
    I am ready to shoot some acrylic enamel and be done! My concern is getting a durable coat of something to rub blemish free on the trailer bunks.
    Yes, this is what b-boats copied! Harlan Orrin designed and built a 4 straker, rare, RACE boat!

    Ill give you a call. But I think I understand where your going. If you want a good high build sandable primer, Duratec makes that, as well a couple others that are reasonable. Duratec ( flowcoat ) or clear top coat, should not be put on the bottom, I wouldnt anyway, and you shouldnt spray it over anything sanded to 400. I sand to 80 and spray Duratec and it fills great. I would worry about it not adhearing to anything less. It goes great over raw glass, or gel, however when sprayed over paint, it can lift, Ive done that. An automotive clear is your best bet, many boats with automotive clear on the bottom with no problems. Or you can speed coat it. There are many more on here that know alot more than I do, I just know what works for me.

    Ill give a call sometime tomorrow afternoon, get a better idea what your looking at. Just glad it sounds like your going to have it going soon.

    Still don't have a supplier who knows what will stick to G2. They say Omni 161 at $150 gallon but guess it needs a sealer first, but who sells a clear sealer?? How about the old Acrylic Enamel??????? It's not like I expect it to wear off during my lifetime, should be someone elses problem. I have the Lace and fluroescent stripes on so I am ready for something! Hate to call Billy for such a simple job./

    I buy at Fiberglass Supply in Burlington, WA. They have website...
    They have Duratec primer ($79/ gallon+ ride) and clear ($103/ gallon + ride). It's in the gel coat section.
    Very good prices and quick and decent customer service...

    Express Composites' line of Duratec Products WHITE - 714-002 , $ 72.64 - A gallon which is the new price and the cheapest you will find anywhere on the planet , and might i mention that Evercoat is way overpriced and not worth the money considering Duratec , is a high build Primer and can be applied up to 50 mill's wet on wet .
