Painting Outboard

Hello All

Has anyone successfully painted their outboard?

I was going to try and repaint my lower unit with the official Yamaha outboard paint. Any pictures of other paint jobs would be great to see.

if you take it back to any bare aluminium you will have to use an acid etch primer on any bare aluminium before using a normal primer just a light wash coat of the etch is fine .upol acid 8 is a decent 1 pack etch that is available in aerosols

Not recommended on aluminium. There is a special self etching primer for that.

Zinc chromate is best etch primer money can buy for Ali ?

We give a 5 year warranty on all our applications , bare ali yellow etch 2 coats primer 3 x top coat. Going no place trust me



PVB/zinc chromate coating specfically for aluminium. Can be used on other ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals, galvanising, etc.
