Hi Rob! I'm still in the assembly stage, not ready to paint the exterior yet. It is my hope to polish the floats and add some black vinyl "checkerboard" accent. If the polish doesn't work out, painting the entire float will be a consideration. See separate comment to you elsewhere. Frank
Hi Rob! I used scotch bright on all surfaces where ZC would be applied. Then just before applying the ZC, I would wipe down the surfaces to be primed using laquer thinner to remove any residual oil. This seemed to work well. Frank
