Buy a Superjet
After doing the roll and tip method you want to do it with cooler temps. In hotter weather the paint dries to fast and doesn't get a chance to smooth out.
I think that just means it doesn't specifically discourage barnacle growth like boat bottom paints for storage in water.That epifanes looks cool. Anyone used it on a hull bottom? I need to redo the bottom of my hull and am hesitant to just spray base/clear and have it scratch like crazy again. The epifanes site says its not for constant water contact....
I used PPG shopline epoxy (~$55 qt) and Nason single stage urethane, also about 55 bucks. Only used about half a quart of each to do the whole ski. I sprayed it all with a 10 dollar HF gun. If I were to do it again all I would change is to upgrade to the HF 50 or 100 dollar gun for better results. Still turned out good and looks better and is tougher than rattle can ever will be. Whatever you do, don’t use paint without a catalyst. It dries harder than regular paint will ever get in just a couple days. It also won’t be melted by gas or other solvents nearly as easy. I posted all the specifics of mixing and sanding grits etc in my build last winter.
Paint has held up excellent except for just where my pvc bunks slide on it. I don’t expect any paint to hold up to that perfectly long term.

What was the reason for epoxy primer? Adhesion?
I have to look into this glazing putty.
My experience with glass work is very limited, but I had situations where I thought my body work was good, sprayed (rattle can) and then imperfections were visible, so I would fix the imperfections with more filler and sanding, but the paint was gummy to sand, so an easily sandable primer seemed like something to seek out for a more "done right" way of doing things.
I did the bottom of my havoc with it. Turned out pretty nice. Wish i had used the proper thinner though but it wetted out pretty nice regardless and held up well.Has anyone painted top and bottom with epifanes with roll and tip method? I have a 2010 superjet that I would like to freshen up this winter.
