Meh, looks okay in photos. All I see are all the flaws. Thank you for the compliment though.
Regarding paint, I would recommend using a two-pack epoxy
primer, and if you were looking to make it perfect plan on doing two coats. Up until now any fairing you have done has been against a background of different colors. Once you get a first coat of primer one you will be able to see all the little things in the surface you missed or that need more work.
Now is your chance to sand down any high spots or fill in any remaining low spots before you do your second coat of primer. Apply a uniform coat and be carefull to avoid sanding
through when you sand the second coat of primer prior to your first coat of paint.
One thing you should be doing anyway is putting a nice round-over on any edges before you epoxy
coat the bare wood. Then when you come back and are sanding
between coats of primer and paint you want to keep the sandpaper away from the edges to avoid sanding through. Just kiss them lightly with a scotchbrite pad will be sufficient for recoating.
As far as paint goes, two pack LPU if you want fancy. I used a single
part oil-based yacht enamel since I know it is going to get beat up and will need retouching. If I had to do it over I might skip the yacht enamel and just go with a gloss oil
based house enamel since they are basically the same thing but one is a lot cheaper than the other and also comes in any color you want.
Not saying the yacht enamel isn't good paint, it is, just that depending on the source you can get house paint that is almost as good for a lot less. Happy painting!
