Painting an outboard

Hi all. The paint on my outboard is bubbling and peeling in some places. Would like some advice on how best to deal with it and what products and paints to use and how to go about it. Thanks Johnny

Can be whole lot of issues, if you spayed the coating on it could be humidity was to high or the compressor was not delivering clean dry air. If the coating is still the manufacturers you could have corrosion occurring below the paint. The only way to deal with it is strip the coating ie sand or chemically strip, apply good primer and top coat.

There's a few ways to go about it depending in budget:

Give it to a body shop - expensive

Do it yourself, strip the decals off, sand and fill and spray it with primer and topcoat using rattle cans

Do the above but with two pack paint from a Spraygun etc. - can be expensive if you don't already have the kit

I have had some good results using rattle can primer and Plastikote as a topcoat, google it.
Take the decals off and sand it to 240grit, spray primer it and knock back with 320 wet and dry paper and then bang the topcoat on.
Best results come from keeping everything warm and dry .

You'll need to clear off every last piece of grease before you start and make sure you degrease it all after!

Thumbs up for any bubbling requires strip to metal.

Most are Ali so will require zinc chromate etch then primer and flat out till nice n smooth then top coat with paint of choice,
I swear by HMG ,s acrythane product use it all the time with excellent results

Be patient and do not rush it, seen many good finish with rattle cans also , pre wipe everything with de Greaser or panel wipe prior to applying paint of any description


It's copasllip on the various top parts of the engine leg, I put this where I do not want any additional new paint landing
