Materials used in this episode:
~ Awlgrip 545 Primer (White) mixed 1:1 with coverter
~ Awlgrip topside paint, Awlcat #3 brush converter mixed 2:1 and reduced with T0031 brushing thinner (maximum 33% of volume)
~ Seafit 3/16″ Mohair roller
Things to Remember!!
~ Awlgrip has 2 different lines of topside paints; Awlgrip and Awlcraft 2000
~ Awlcraft 2000 paint is for spray application only and is able to be buffed for repairs.
~ Awlgrip is able to be sprayed OR rolled / tipped but is not meant to be buffed for blending repairs. Buffing this paint will shorten the life of the paint and will tend to fade faster than the surrounding painted areas that were NOT buffed. What does this mean? You’ll have a faded blotch that stands out by the following year :-O
