Outboard Paint Recommendations?

Hello,

I need to paint the shaft extension kit i'm fitting to my Mercury 150 V6, I guess i need primer, black paint and clear coat, quicksilver primer doesn't seem to exist for sale, any recommendations on what to buy?

Mike

Self etch primer if you're going onto raw ali.

You can get quicksilver light grey primer.

In the end I bought quicksilver primer, quicksilver enamel paint and quicksilver clear coat from 3 different places. In hindsight very expensive and not worth it given the age of the engine.

I've painted a Merc lower section myself. Defo use etch primer on bare ally. I used a build up of primer and Merc black, no lacquer.

How do you identify a self etching primer? Do you have an example?

Then would you use recommended primer on top of that? It's a minefield!

It'll have something like 'etch primer' written on the can. ;-)
