Buffing compound to make it shine, three step system. But you're gona wish you used Gelcoat on the whole thing. Orange Peel??? Like a big dog. If you thin the gelcoat out it will make it soft, less orange and EZ R to sand. You can buy a clear Gelcoat, but do not use it on white. Like I said it will yeller on you. Ever see a fade on a custom boat, usually the main color in the deck to hull area. It was first done with clear and then the color, but in the mold. Clear has a very short pot life, half of that of gelcoat. Good Luck.

No primer, just spray over the old. Thick as well,because you don't want to sand through it and have to shoot more gel. The stuff is thick like gravey. When I shot (sprayed) a boat I used a 2 quart pressuer pot, binks is good. Get a big ass tip, not one for automotive or it will plug. Who's the chick in white? For a day with her I'll shoot your boat for free!!! Any way thats all there is to it, spray it sand it buff it. If you want you can get some PVA(it's green). You sray this on after the gelcoat to cut the air off from it, it will harden faster and will sand EZ R. Sprays like water and puts a film over the gel, come off with water as well, EZ. Who is the chick anyway?
The bottom of your boat looks good. Try sanding a spot with 600 and it should start to shine. Buff it out and take a look at it. If you can get away from messing with the bottom it would save you a bunch of time. And find some good clors to go with it on the top. Look at some custom boats on the web and see what they are doing. My first boat was all red with black trim on the rub rail and windshield, gauge cluster. Looked bad ass. Try HotBoat magazine, I think their still around. Who's the chick in white?

The boat has a good amount of freeboard(side). Looks like a good canidate for a spider web paint job. That would look bitchen. Kinda like the boat has run into a spider web and is tearing through it, Blue or yellow spider web. that would be cool.

unfortunatly i do not know the chick in the white, lol but ide like to know if she does porn!

that spot you see which is a different colour i used compound and buffed it out, so the paint wil buff out, but i dont want a red hull, which is why im painting the hull white im going to mask over spots and create a bit of a design to modernise it

last question, after i use the gelcoat do i need to spay after with anitfoul paint? or will the gelcoat keep the marine life off my boat?

and how much of everything do you think i need?

im going to order a gallon on brightside white, a gallon of primer for it, 2 quarts of red for the sides, and a gallon of gelcoat as well as a gallon on thinner for the primer (for the brightside)


is this too much?

Nope no anti crap, get some high temp mold release wax. And don't listen to some Idiot say car wax, the shit won't last. Mold wax will withstand gobs of heat and will handle salt water. If it will last through that the north east is nothing. I was born and raised in Massena N.Y. The mold wax is a pure Carnuba. This is what is used in molds(like duh) to keep the boat from sticking to the mold during production. I would wax the mold three times before I built a boat in it. You must let it sit and flash off before you put on more of it, about 6 hours longer if it's cold out. I would put it on in durect sun light, and it hit's 110 pluss out hear. Just let it turn to a white powder and rub it off, EZ stuff to rub off. Wet sand the boat to 800 or 1000, buff with three compounds. First a high grit and then a meduim grit down to a fine grit compound. That black magic stuff is good for a final buff and then wax. For tape use a fine line 3m product. When you spray the boat pull your tape as soon as you can and at a 45 to the wet gel. Spray the tape line last!!!! If you pull your tape when the gell is setting up you will have a saw blde look to it. Any drips that happen onto the unpainted part can be trimmed with a razor blade. And get a couple of gallons of ACetone for clean up. You are going to flip your boat over, right???
