Lower unit touch up
« on: February 28, 2016, 12:57:41 PM »
Thought I would share a few pictures of my lower I shot over the weekend. I'll have to post a couple pictures at a time. Sorry.... It wont let me post more than 2 due to file size. First two pictures are when i started sanding. The next three are in primer and the last three are finish product.

Thanks... I can't believe it came out as good as it did. I am the worlds worst painter on anything I  have ever tried to paint. I took my time and let it dry very good between coats. Lots of prep work.  :thumbup:

Sorry... Here is the primer and paint I used. I think I've got about 15 bucks in this from start to finish. It's not a fancy powder coat job but will work for me.  (fp)

The time you took paid off bigly, with a nice-looking finished job  :thumbup:

And thanks for showing us what you used, too. That's always helpful  :nod:

Do you happen to have the color name of the finish paint?

Yes. It's just good old gloss black enamel automotive paint. I could have bought the kit from Yamaha that would match up the same as factory but I believe it was around 100 bucks. You can't tell the difference unless you know what the factory color is suppose to be. I honestly have around 15 bucks total in it start to finish. That's sandpaper primer paint and a tack cloth. My friend that owns Bart's Marine Service here in Louisville gave me good advice and direction on what primer and paint to buy. I'm by far NOT a painter of any kind. But I took my time and followed his advice and it came out great.
