Lund Paint

14 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I saw a post about this before, but can't find it. I'm looking for Lund paint (black) to retouch a dock rash area. Do most dealers carry it or is there an alternative that's a black color match?

Thanks!

Most dealers can order it, but you'll have to buy it in a larger volume than you want... but it'll match...

So, would a GM or similar auto paint in a black gloss, with a clear coat be the easier option?

Not concerned about a perfect match.....close would be nice.

Thanks!

Thanks marine_man!

Taking sand paper to the hull of the beloved ride is an experience! I found a matching paint, or very close to, thru a couple calls, now it comes down to my skills, much appreciated!

I'll take a couple before/after pics in the hope it shows someone else what can be done on a few dock rashes by a novice handyman.

How did it end up? Would love to see those pictures, thinking about doing the same to my white Lund.

I'll try to upload my pics tomorrow.

I wasn't looking for perfection, as it'll just get nicked up again, so I found a close paint match. Not quite the gloss but good enough, I just wanted someone to look from 10 feet away and not "notice". Lund paint itself is not so easy to track down and isn't cheap.

All said, sandpaper, primer, tape, bondo, paint I came out close to the cost of a true matching Lund paint can.

Here's a before/after look at my paint job. It got caught on a nasty wind on opener and one of the bumpers ended up on the dock deck, not between dock and hull.

Sand, filler primer, paint, clear coat, etc. Not perfect but a lot easier to look at now than a week ago.

I stopped by a dealer today to ask about the paint and they said you can buy a spray can for around $40 and a quart for about $100. I have the forest green model, now I wish I had bought black.

Isn't that a kick in the teeth? It's been that price for a while now... used to be a bit cheaper, but with the evinronmental regulations it costs more to ship, etc.

I called a couple places and they actually gave me the PPG for the Lund paint, so you could try that, or take a chip off the boat and have it scanned and mixed to match.

Yeah, I hear ya though, $4 for the "really close" can was good enough for me!

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
