Fiberglass Cloth and Painting Process

Post by scbike » Thu Mar 29, 2012 9:20 pm

I plan on painting my canoe (marine grade) but wanted to make sure the steps (below) were correct in order starting from # 1.

1. Apply Resin onto the Fiberglass cloth for exterior and interior of hull
2. Apply Primer to the exterior and interior of the hull
3. Apply Paint to the exterior and interior of the hull

Thanks

That's the basic steps.

Remember that the epoxy must be clean and preferably scuffed so the primer can bond. Refer to your primer instructions.
