my paint on my drive needed repainted (2000 Chaperal)so we sand blasted the aluminum housing down to bare metal.  We sprayed a zinc chromate primer on and then a single stage grey base.  The primer came off in strips (large bandaid size).  This boat is moored all summer at a marina in Pa. with all fresh water.  Getting ready to sandblast again and start over for this year.  Which of your products should I use and why ???  Seems timing is important so could you give us optimal time between coats ??
Thanks

Hi,
Essentially you will be required to use products which are in fact suitable to be immersed for extended periods of time, but you will also have pretty strict overcoating windows as well which will help to ensure that you achieve and maintain sound adhesion for each of the products. Based off the information which you have provided so far, it sounds as if you are looking to achieve a finish which would be quite similar to the factory finish. If this were the case, I am sorry to say, but we do not have the products or a system in which you can follow to achieve a finish which will resemble the factory finish.
 
However, if you are looking to simply paint the drive for cosmetic appearances or if you are looking to achieve antifouling protection as well and wouldn't be too concerned with the overall appearance of the coating itself (flat - no gloss and a slight bit rougher) then I would recommend that you use Primocon Aerosol as the primer and Trilux 33 Aerosol as the antifouling paint.
 
The recommended system for you to use, will be as follows:
1. Degrease the surface with Special Thinner 216
2. Sand the surface with 80 grit paper
3. Remove all sanding residue with a brush/vacuum/clean air line
4. Immediately (within 1 hour of sanding) apply 1 coat of Primocon Aerosol
5. Apply a 2nd coat of Primocon Aerosol
6. Apply 2 coats of Trilux 33 Aerosol
 
Hope this helps!

Jay, I have a body shop and can spray paint any of your products.  We are sandblasting again to bare AL. and will be using alodine primer since the C/R primer peeled.  Just want to use best anti fouling paint and flat paint will be ok.  Engine looks terrible with corrosion right now.  Thanks
