All surfaces must be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to painting. Stir Boot Top Enamel thoroughly before use. Sand between coats of new enamel with 220 grit paper. Always wipe with a tack cloth immediately before the fresh application of paint to remove any airborne dust which may have settled.
Bare Fiberglass: The entire surface to be painted, regardless of age, must be thoroughly washed with 95 Fiberglass Dewaxer to remove all traces of mold release agents and wax. Sand the gelcoat with 80-120 grit paper to a dull, frosty appearance; solvent clean to remove residue. If the surface is in excellent condition, proceed with the first finish coat of Boot Top.
If the surface is rough or imperfections exist, it will have to be repaired. Fill all nicks and gouges with Pettit Protect 7000/7001 Epoxy Fairing Compound or 7191 Easypoxy Mender; sand flush when hard, then solvent clean. Follow with a coat of 4172/4027 Polypoxy White Undercoater or 6149 Easypoxy White Undercoater to smooth the surface and provide a uniform base; sand well and solvent clean. Proceed with the first finish coat of Boot Top.
Bare Wood: Sand surface smooth with 80-120 grit paper; solvent clean to remove residue. Fill all screwheads or small holes with 7191 Easypoxy Mender; sand flush and solvent clean. Apply a coat of 2018 Clear Sealer to penetrate and seal the porous grain. Follow with one or two coats of 6165 Yacht White Undercoater until an evenly smooth base condition is reached; sand each coat with 80- 120 grit paper and solvent clean. The Undercoater can be blended with the finish enamel so there is not such a striking contrast between the two colors. Proceed with the first finish coat of Boot Top.
Bare wood that has been epoxied must be thoroughly scrubbed with an ammonia/water solution then sanded with 120 grit paper and solvent cleaned. Follow with a coat of 4172/4027 Polypoxy White Undercoater to smooth the surface and provide a uniform base; sand well and solvent clean; then proceed with the first coat of Boot Top.
Painted Surfaces: If the old paint is in good, sound condition, sand it thoroughly smooth with 80- 120 grit paper; solvent clean to remove residue, then proceed with the first coat of Boot Top. If the old paint is in poor condition, remove it with a paint and varnish remover or by sanding. Proceed with instructions for the appropriate bare surface system.
