Fleet Farm, used it for my old lund. Fleet Farm Brand Exterior paint in red, may be called tractor paint or something like that. I primed the outside then 2 coats borrowed a friend's air painter. Inside I scraped off loose then painted over in a white, same type of paint. Was good enough for me, with assorted items needed, tape, scraper, wire brush I think I spent under $40, but that was 10 years ago and the whole could use another overhaul

The oil based "marine" paint at Ace is incredible stuff. Mad my pontoon sides look like new, and while I used blue, I bet their red is pretty close to lund red. It looks great after 5 years. I sprayed it on with air compressor.

Just bring it over to the Crestliner plant in Little Falls and have it painted to look like a Crestliner. Thats what my father-in-law did. gringringrin

I painted one a few years back. Prep is the big thing. Scrap and wire brush all the loose stuff off then wash with miradic acid. My paint job is ten years old.

I just re-painted a Lund rowboat this spring. I was able to get fairly close to "Lund Red" using FF branded spray paint! Not a big fan of spray paint for finish quality, but for an old rowboat, I figured I'd give it a shot. It actually turned out surprisingly good! I think 3 cans cost me $12....plus about 2 hours of sanding and taping....not a bad evening's work........ The old paint was scratched up and a little faded, but solidly adhered to the aluminum. I didn't have any bare metal to worry about priming by the time I got done sanding, I just had to rough up the existing coat with a fine grit on my palm sander..

THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!

ANOTHER ? WHAT KIND OF PRIMER DO I USE ON THE ALUMINUM????

I DID REDO SOME ALUMINUM WHEELS ON MY CAR AND USED DUPLICOLOR BRAND SELF ETCHING PRIMER AND THEN USED THEIR WHEEL PAINT, THEY STILL LOOK GOOD AFTER ONE MN WINTER.

SO I WAS THINKING I WOULD USE THAT PRIMER ON THE ALUMINUM AND JUST TOP COAT WITH SOMETHING ELSE.....

ratherbe, I repainted the green interior of my old S-14 several years ago. I 'washed' it with lacquer thinner and painted it with spray cans of Textured Auto Trunk paint from the auto parts store. As I recall, it took ~5 cans to do the area I wanted done. It's available in a tan or medium grey, I went with the tan so the interior didn't heat up so much from the sun. The nice part is it's slip resistant. Phred52

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
