RE: First gasser, Prestwich Sigma51

RE: First gasser, Prestwich Sigma51

Don't get me wrong, I appreaciate the tip.
I just don't understand what is required and where, and if this involves taking the engine apart I'm hesitant because I never had a Zenoah before.

RE: First gasser, Prestwich Sigma51

Is there a picture of this? and is it easy to get to this part? (Can't register to jrcbd)

RE: First gasser, Prestwich Sigma51

Started on my boat tonight but didn't get far.

RE: First gasser, Prestwich Sigma51

Thanks, that's an option too.
If the paint shop don't work out I might paint with a spray can and then use a real clear cote with hardener to finish it off.

RE: First gasser, Prestwich Sigma51

It's spray can acrylic primer, paint and clear coat.
Perhaps I can buff it to some shine, but it's just not hard enough to withstand wear and tear.

I think it looks very good. I'd very much like to have one, but I agree with the crowd asking for a bare hull.
