Re-did our 37 foot boot strip this spring. PO used Pette enamal. Used a fiberglass paint
remover and romoved most of the old paint
. (left some on just faint to use as guide for masking tape). Wiped down with acatone, followed with a green 3M pad fine grit to roughen up, cleaned area with acatone again then applied interlux
bright side. I bought a quart for a few dollars more than the pint size boot strip. Interlux
said both bright side and boot strip paint was same paint. I used a good foam brush and put 5 coats on lightly sanding
then wipe down with acatone between each coat. I found a second foam brush to tip off was usefull in removing any air bubbles. (Tip with a wet edge, I even thinned paint to geive me more time. Whole process took me 6 evenings about 1 hour ech after work
. Each coat got smoother and shines brighter and brighter.
When removing masking tape make sure to pull off at 90 deg angle backfolding tape as you go.
but total cost was less than $100. Well worth it.
