Paint for outboard hangers...

........if that's what they're called ! You know, on ones SIB there are two plates on the transom - front and rear - made of steel on which one afixed the O/B. On my Yam the plates are grey - anyone know if there is a spercific paint for th job or should I just pop to halfords ?

Buy it & Use it, then sell it and buy something bigger

They're likely to be made of Aluminium. To do a proper job you really need to take 'em off, bead blast and etch prime.... so without that whatever you do will be a compromise. I believe Halfords do quite a range. Just pick a "hammerite" ish paint.. and put up with the fact that it'll not be ever lasting.... There... is that "geek" enough for ya?

Has to be hammerite ish cos Hammerite doesn't stick well to aluminium. It says on the tin.

I'd just give it a good wire brushing and leave it at that. You're going to burst throught he paint anyway as soon as you mount the motor.
