    make sure you clean the steel real good & primer it 1st...if you have a compressor, your better off buying a gravity feed sprayer from Harbor Freight (works very good) & a "good" quality Marine paint & go to it ...just sayin' my .02 cents

    I am a paint rep for AKZONOBEL paints, there's a million ways you can go however since its a trailer there is one easy product you can go with. Glidden porch and floor polyurethane, its a true urethane as well as a "DTM" direct to metal. No priming needed. It will flow and level out like glass.
    And the new project begins!

    Interesting, i have a shop in boise with a sikkens mixing bank and the rep for this area lives in california..you can do the automotive stuff too??

    H20 we use alkyd enamel, thats whats on most trailers, or automotive paint if you want higher end and more gloss or custom colors. the alkyd runs about 28.00 a gallon..the stuff i use is actually made in salt lake, you can buy it at national coatings in slc. or if you need help let me know

    nice way to do it is to blast the trailer clean and start from scratch, how solid is the paint on it now?

    your rep is an independent dealer rep, I am in a different division. I deal with large accounts like Home Depot and Walmart.

    Depends on where you are located, if you are in Cali good luck on finding anything decent in the alkyd resin/ urethane world. Anywhere else can be found at home depot in the porch floor bay.

    FYI the Glidden PF80xx is a polyurethane with alkyd resin "long oil" Pretty much any oil base product will now consist of alkyd resins over a true oil.
