Well, my tub is now dog cock red! Pleased with the finish, may wet sand and lay another coat on tomorrow, il see how it turns out. The only blemish is a drip from the gun as I hadn't screwed the lid on correctly, it right on the keel and it can stay there. There is a bit of "orange peel", maybe I didn't have the gun set up correctly, il soon get rid of that.
A big thanks goes to Nugent, he supplied the paint and some know how to get the job done. I'm not a sprayer, infact this'll be my first try but I'm glad I did it. A good learning curve.
