Brighside

Anyone ever painted a console with international Brightside? Wondering what kind of finish can be achieved. Specially by someone who has the patients of a German shep on a drugs hunt.

This is what can be achieved with just a humble roller. That was my first time using the stuff. You do seem to have to leave Brightside for a while to fully harden though. I've got a friend who painted the deck of his SR4 with the stuff and that's held up fine. Not sure I'd want to use it on a deck my self though.

Tim, thats like one of those "womens anti-aging" products - where it looks much better until you realise its mostly the lighting in the "after" picture!

That looks good Tim. Did you use a brush at all? (BTW the drill went on monday, sorry mate)

It wasn't just the sun that made it look like that! Tubes were cleaned, deck was re-painted, as was console and nose cone. A few more just to prove it!

Last pic shows a close up. As you can see, you do get a slight orange peel effect with a roller but I quite like that. I did another one after that in white which really transformed the boat.

Hardly used a brush. You can get a roller right into the corners quite well.

I'm nearly sold, chewy put me onto the stuff but was wondering what kind of finish it actually gave. What size tin did you use and how many coats?
What kind of prep work did you do Tim? That's a fine transformation from old and grotty to mint looking!

Was three years ago that I did that one, honestly can't remember how much paint I used! I wouldn't have thought it was more than a standard (750ml?) can. I glassed over various holes etc first, then faired with filler. Sanded the whole thing fairly extensively with an orbital sander. Then painted with International Pre-cote, with a bit of orange brightside in it to give it a slight orange tint. Sanded again after that a bit, then rolled the Brightside on. It's worth putting a dash of the correct thinner in, or warming the paint first so its nice and thin when you put it on. Several thin coats, sanding lightly between each one. If it all goes totally wrong you can always just sand it down and start again, plus Brightside is pretty cheap

Got a pic of the console you are thinking of doing?
