Painting name on a Zodiac 310fr

Hello again all,
I want to paint a name on my SIB (and post code) but I am finding it hard to find paint that is in a small enough quantity to do this. I can find paint, but it is sold in large tins eg 1ltr and is expensive for just a name. So I was wondering if any of you excellent people know of an "alternative" or link where I could get smaller quantities (250ml).

Thanks in advance and blessings

Andy

ps still working on the wheels project (I used to be indecisive but I'm not so sure now).

Hi Andy, if you do a search on ebay for either "PVC" or "Hypalon Stencil kit" it will bring up a few choices.

Hi again "landlocked" again 22 quid. In the stencilkit (as afor mentioned they quoted 60 ml) so maybe 250 ml is too much. having said that 22 quid for the security of my vessel) is worth it.

I may have been on board as I flew to Gan then! I was on a VC10 number XV108, Man that was 9 months "unacompanied" in Gan. Thank God I was with the aircraft and not posted there!

Well it was a VC10 that I flew out in but cannot remember the exact date (its an age thing ) but having said that they did not fly out that often so could well have been on the same flight (small world).

Yes you are right it was a 9 month unnacompanied tour used to be 13 months with a month back in the uk after 6 months, so on reflection I think it was better to do the 9 rather than have to go back after a month at home.

What a place though we only worked from 7am > 1pm as it got too hot so had plenty of leisure time fishing boating and the like

I do not think it will do any harm (but cannot be 100% sure) but I think it might just peel off could be worth a try, maybe just try a bit in an area out of sight see how it goes.

Good luck with the wheels
