Default dumas airboat problems

I just recieved a complete dumas windy airboat for free, I need to repaint it and dont know what kind of paint to use, and the motor, LA .15 has a issue, the needle valve has to be all the way in for it to throttle up any ideas? Thanks new to the forum. Dan

Paint = thats an easy one - any shaker can that is fuel proof ( usually any of the ones that you will find at an auto parts store - just be sure to buff , or remove the old paint first )
And about the engine , I would say get a new carb , but , at the prices of carbs I might even just suggest getting a different engine off EBAY . ( or a new one from like TOWER HOBBIES )
