RHIB tube repaint.??

G/day to the forum,

This may seem an unusual question, but has anyone ever repainted their RHIB a new colour apart from the one it was delivered in.

Can this be done by a normal auto spray painter or do you have to stay with the original presentation because of the flexing, rubber base of the tubes?

Cheers.

You can over hear mate. The paint they use is the same stuff they use for lorry curtain sides. I would suggest you have a go on a test piece first
