Shelley -- Most people here buy boat paint because it is an enamel that is designed to coat fiberglass. Rolling and Tipping is a method of rolling paint on in little sections and using the tip of a brush to run along and take out bubbles that had just been rolled on. You can watch it on You Tube. We are planning this for next week. Everyone seems to use Interlux topside paint because of their reasonable price and durability, but their colors are limited. We are using topside paint from supermarinepaint.com because we wanted a custom color. BTW, we have spent 4 weeks prepping our camper for painting! We haven't even finished priming. And, you can't prime before you buy paint because usually you want to purchase the proper primer for the paint you are going to use. What i mean is that I suspect you have not primed your boler
yet so good luck getting all of that done in one weekend!! As for primer coats, the paint company told us we could get away with 1 but we want to have a completely white surface without any of our brown/dark bondo work showing through, so we will do 2 coats.
Have fun-- can't wait to see how it turns out. We will post pictures of ours when it is finally completed! -Cindy
