Ameron 450k on fiberglass

Hello All,

I am making a fibreglass dodger for Lara Craig which is almost complete.
I have 3 litres of Ameron 450k paint left over from repainting the deck.
Does anybody know if this can be used on fibreglass, or should i just go with Flow-coat?

Aloha JohnJ,
Welcome aboard! I can't help you specifically with that model of Ameron but do know that with the proper primer you can make it work. Looks like Gord already sent you the information on how to find out.
Kind Regards,
