I believe I bought the enamel rustolium brand , however I will have to check. It was cheap though, I believe each can was around $4 or $5 dollars. It was an all purpose spray paint....I wii take a picture of the can and post it.
I bought the paint at the Lowes near my house, and another Lowes across town. They didn't have enough cans in stock at the first one I went to.
I put the Red Max Floor Wax on every part of my trailer. I don't know how many layers cause I started on one side then to the other. By the time I got to the original side I started, it was dry. So it was many circles around the trailer. No bleeding colors, and I didn't pay attention to what color I was wiping the wax on, just was all over the place. Make sure to wear plastic gloves as it is quit dangerous to your health in liquid form. Also use a step ladder so the wax liquid does not roll down your arm. It's safe and glossy on your trailer, just not on your skin!
I also sanded a few spots were I had some drips, repainted and the paint seemed really durable. My feeling is that it will be a good durable paint. I think as long as you lightly scuff the gel coat it will stick like primer.
The decals logos were just a design I created on the computer. I sent the Vector files to an Internet place called the Sign Chef, and they delivered them via UPS within the week....however ridiculously expensive....I would use a local place for the decals if I had to do it again.
