Hello folks. I am at the point of final paint
for the inside FG cabinets/fixtures of my 73' 13' boler
. I have repaired all the FG, done all my plywood reinforcements, gelcoat and primer. I have sanded to a 220. I recently applied a Total Boat topside oyster white thinned out to roughly 12%. I rolled and tipped with total boat recommended roller and brush. Very nice product, I can see the value. However this am when I checked on it, I could definitely see quite an orange peel. Also due to the high gloss you can see EVERY imperfection, be it a nick in the paint
or just the wavy nature of the build of a Boler
1/8" FG cabinet. Not at all happy, I wet sanded for an hr + and most of the orange peel came off, some left on low spots.
My question is...when do I call it quits...should I simply get an oyster white flat or satin and not stress about a high gloss interior? The finish with the primer only, looks smooth and uniform, however if you were to paint
that same primer with gloss it would look terrible.
Need some thoughts, most of me is thinking satin/flat finish.
