Default RE: Paint for nitro boats

Use automotive paints that you use with a spray gun.I use urothanes,They works awsome on my boats!! But if you want to,you can use spray paints/rattle cans on it,but you must use good autoclears on it so the nitro wont eat that good paint job.[8D] JW rattle can the red and white stars and stripes,but he'd used automotive blue and clear with his spray gun.Here's the finish producted,one bad and awsome vegas.You cant beat the look of a paint finish that was done with automotive paint.You has show boat look plus nitro wont hurt it too.If you need any other advice I can help you. I'd promises My boyfriend to let him paint my boat.Oh go the your local NAPA store,That where I buy my paints at and it's less exspeive then DUPONT or PPG. I use the crossfire system.
