Prop paint

Hi, our Evinrude 50 is a year old and through accidental grounding on sand and general use the edges of the prop have lost the black protection and now the metal is showing. I was just wondering if there is a paint product just to touch it up so its looks smart, thanks
Charlie

I used that once. Then I was told that Hammerite (black) has Iron oxide in it, which I guess will react with the aluminium. Couldn't find any ingredients list on the tin, so I might be wrong.

Now I use ordinary black paint - not water based of course.

I recently did something similar to you

Brought the boat home took the prop off, smoothed the area off, gave it a couple of coats of etching primer, then finished off with as they say normal black paint, back to original look now, I used Matt as I preferred the look
