    Re: POST YOUR CUSTOM PAINT

    To those of you who have painted your ski, how do you take care of the hull side? Some of these are painted all the way down, some just to the waterline with white factory gelcoat on the ride area. Is there any better clear coat than others? My ZXi was black rattle canned by the previous owner on the hull side - so I'll have to strip the hull and sand to the white gelcoat, but as I'm doing repair for some gashes I'd like to repaint the hull - then thinking might as well repaint the ski. Do you wax these custom jobs quite frequently, or how do you prep to make sure that the paint doesn't wear down as quick?

    Any high quality base clear will work. I haven't waxed mine or done any upkeep but 2 things to keep in mind.

    1) If you let it sit in the water for any extended length of time it will delaminate.
    2) Beaching will destroy it.

    Yes thanks, I was just going back a few pages (started at 1-20, then jumped here and there) and saw a response of yours. So with prepping - hit with 100-200 grit, prime, base and finally clear and wetsand? I don't want to paint the hull as I would prefer stock gelcoat, but areas will be repaired and so I'll have to do something to make it look good - at least for me when I crawl under it.

    BillingsIPD, how are you attaching the hydroturf to the bumpers on those skis? Prep with acetone and place Weldwood then turf over the top after letting it sit for 5 minutes or so?

    Why not just get a matching gelcoat patch kit. You can get pretty dang close and it's underneath so probably not noticeable. As far as sanding; depends if you are sealing the ski or painting over the top.
