Painting the trailer- results so far

So after what felt like weeks of prep and sanding, I finally got to start painting the trailer today. I was going to do the roll and tip method that I learnt from here, but when I started doing that it wasn't working too well with the paint I bought. I was noticing a lot of brush strokes. So I let that dry and sanded it back out.

I went with a commercial grade marine paint in high gloss that I got from Coverdale paint. I decided to spray the paint and I am glad I did. It gives it a nice texture which hides the really small imperfections.

When I first got it

A big job, but the finished results look good! Are you going to paint the bottom a different color?

Yes the bottom will be a shade darker. The very bottom will be done with black rock guard
