Can you please tell me what exact type of paint you bought??
Did you use any primer? How do you think it will be for removing stains? We have these darn black streaks on our trailer that I CANNOT get off and I HATE them... I will re-paint with a toothbrush I am so ticked at the way ours turned out!!!!
Did you paint it outside or in a garage??
I love the shine...2 coats????
I bought my paint from ICI Paints in Winnipeg. I'm sure there must be a location in your area. I know they are in Calgary and Edmonton, so they must be in the south western part of BC as well.
The paint is called:
ICI DEVOE COATINGS
ALKYD INDUSTRIAL GLOSS ENAMEL
I did not use a primer, but I did sanded down my boler with 40, then 80 and finally with 120 grit sandpaper.
I just painted it in my driveway. Bugs love new paint, but if you wait a day the bugs simply just brush right off without really leaving a mark.
I gave the boler 3 coats of paint. It says to wait overnight before you can re-coat, but I waited 2 days between coats. I really wanted the coat to cure.
If you have black coming through, I would recommend a primer. ICI has a primer called "GRIPPER". This stuff is awsome. It will cover anything, and it will stick like glue for ever!!
For my 3 coats of paint, I used 1.5 gallons of paint. It's priced at $56.99 a gallon here in Winnipeg. Most ICI stores are very flexiable on the price of their paints. I ended up getting it for $37.99 a gallon. So make sure to ask them if they are willing to come down on their price.
Also use a foam roller to apply this paint. You will end up with a streak free finish!
It's been about a month since I painted my boler and I am REALLY HAPPY with the results!! I get a lot of comments on the colour and most people think I had it professionally done. The paint has now fully cured and is rock hard!.
Hope this helps you out.
