Painting process

Post by Fishhawk » Tue Feb 07, 2012 4:46 pm

I am getting ready to paint my Flats Flier, the bottom is going to be Interlux VC performance and have not decided on the sides, does is matter which gets painted first the sides or bottom.

Do the bottom now. You may want to do the topsides after the turn and you do any deck work.

When you do the deck work you can drip or run onto the sides and onto your paint.

Yes, I would hold on the sides until you are ready to do the deck. Most builds require some blending between the sides and deck. No need to paint and then have to sand it off.
