i am waiting for Avon in S.Wales to come back to me on a fitting price.

So it depends on there price as to how brave i feel. However i already have all the hypalon strips to seal inside and out and the glue!!

However after reading previous threads on this forum, i'm now a bit worried about tackling it on my own!

Any helpers or advise on fitting would be well received

Ian

Hi jizm

thanks for your reply ref solar charger!

The paint goes on well i used a varnish roller, i tried the foam ones but they brake down very quickly and left bits in the paint. apply a good coat with the varnish roller, then come back to it after 10 mins or so and roll again, this leaves a fine & even finish. After it drys its not far of a perfect finish.

I put 3 coats on the hull and ive put 2 coats on the deck (soon to do a third) next is to lightly sand totally smooth and then machine polish with a fine grit polish.

chuffed to bits with the paint though good luck

Varnish roller? don't think I've seen those before, B&Q? Got loads of foam rollers, not the same?
