We are finally in the process of repainting our Scamp with Interlux Brightside. So far, we're very impressed. We sanded, washed, and painted with a roller and brush. It is a very glossy finish- much nicer than our decayed, sun baked gel coat. We are still going to add another coat and some embellishments to it...and some snazzy hubcaps!

That's looking good.
You guys give inspiration. I can only hope that this one will look as good.
I've got 'er sanded and the top half primed as of to day. Hope to get a couple of coats of finish on in the next week. and then work on the lower half. In between the Honey-do's i might "get-er-done" by fall. Here's a pic while being sanded.Jim

Looks rather good.

Though the color looks rather hot for a camper....I'd add white on top, other coloring striping with white on the side to bring the white top into the color scheme. The other coloring to add touch matching the interior colors....

Thanks!

We have an AC, and the trailer is kept parked under a giant oak tree and tarp when not in use, so we weren't worried about the heat factor. We'll repaint the top in a light color if someday we decide not to have AC. That Brightside paint and an electric sander makes it an easy job.

Is that what can be expected on a Boler paint job?

Looks really good for using a roller and brush. I'm considering doing some exterior work also, so I was just wondering why a roller instead of a spay bomb? What kind of paint did you use?

How did you get such a finish with a roller? also did you have to do any repairs ? I have some spiderweb cracking I want to take care of

I have used Brightsides on boats and it really looks like it was sprayed on when it was just rolled.I use a mini 3 inch hot dog roller made of foam and a good quality brush.The trick is thinning it just a little and only rolling up and down from like the bottom to the belly band and then tipping with the brush left to right.Only roll about a 6 inch wide spot and then tip it and just work your way around it.I will probably start with the roof and then do from the belly band up and then from the bottom to the belly band.I will be doing my Scamp in a few weeks.I am still working on the interior.

make sure to prime with interlux primer to fill in pits and spiders, since brightside is such a glossy paint all defects will show

I think the color turned out great. It's a bright shine too. Sooooo..... Just how much paint did it take to cover your 13' ?
