I'm finally able to get a start on my Excalibur project (I currently have it flipped upside down in the yard
....but of course have a few questions:
Some of the strakes on the bottom had some small repairs done with "bondo" so first off I'm going to grind that out and fix it properly.
There is a dip in the flat surface of one strake about 6" long and about 1/4" deep that I plan on grinding down to the glass and repair with "kitty hair"
Also there are two other indentations near the outsides of the V towards the rear which appear to have been made by bunk boards from possibly being on too short of a trailer at some point in time.
I am finishing the ENTIRE boat insinde and out with Nason full-thane Y2K as my budget just can't support Imron....
Sooo first of all, do I NEED to use a primer surfacer and sand that out first before the primer sealer? (I'm not looking for show quality but would like it to look somewhat decent when I'm done)
Secondly, I plan on painting it ALL white inside and out... How "white" do I want to go?
Will an absolute "pure" white come out too bright and show a lot of dirt or am I better off with a slightly "darker" white?
My color scheme is going to be white and stainless....
I found a sort of pearl white (non metalic) but from the sample seemed to have sort of a blue tint to it.... Will it look that way on the boat?
I was thinking of trying to find more of a "silver white" but not sure how it would look....
They can mix ANY automotive color and they also have a selection of fleet colors....
Their whites all about the same price regardless of the small tint differences...
