Painting Hypolon Tubes

Hello community i'm looking to pain a set of tubes and have three questions for you guys.

1. Where can i find "Yellow" Paint for the tubes? I have found it seams every other color red, gray, black, red and orange but no Yellow.
2. How well does this work?
3. How do i do it?

Any guidance would be great!

Hi.

I think the only guidance you'll get is 'Don't do it'

Do however do a search on here for painting tubes, and you'll find all the reasons not to.

Sorry, not really what you want to hear, but I think you'll regret it.

I need it painted for work. Not worried about resale. This will not be a rec boat it is 100% Work Boat.

if for work, why don't you add yellow patches everywhere ? It will last longer than any paint and will remain yellow

No space, to many things on tubes only way is paint.

Found this:
http://farbenhaus-metzler.de/webshop...0de54a561a4a60
They do have yellow: Zitronengelb 0.375 Liter.
I have seen it on tubes in blue. You will need at least two coats, three is better.

Ryan, Here is a link to an Oregon company that sells yellow paint made for hypalon boats.

http://www.riverconnection.com/infla...b4948070222c35

They only show quarts & pints, but they may be able to order gallons.
Good luck with the project.
