Prepping for polish and powder coat

Post by Retroman » Mon Jan 02, 2012 6:45 pm

Well I guess I would do alot more painting if my buddy John didnt own a powdercoating shop.
Wouldnt you know, the upper cowl I minted out, wont fit with the starter install on the 1955 mark 55. You can see by the picture, its just a little different. Looks like before this motor was painted black, it was white, before that, Turquiose............???????

The turquoise was probably the factory color...."Sarasota Blue" I believe was the name....I think the "Marlin blue" was a darker color.

Sarasota Blue came with Sand Tan mid & lower unit,Marlin Blue came with Gulf Blue mid & lower

Hard to see these colors exactly cause of flash wash out, but I didn't feel like getting them out to shoot better photos

Powder coating was developed to give a stronger finish than a conventional paint. Powder coating is used in a number of projects, its major function is for metal fabrication.
