Hi everyone, I’m sure this has been asked before. Just looking for advice on best paint to use for the exterior (sides) of our 1960 Franklin, the surface is still pretty good although I will be filling a few old screw holes and cutting out some rot, approx 50mm at the base. I would like to spray it and finish with a shiny/gloss surface. Can or should I use a water based Acrylic outdoor house paint ? Can I spray it with standard automotive spray gun? Thinning of the paint - what mixtures ? Any advice or past experience will be appreciated, thank you.
I used a friend & his gear, I'm not sure of the nozzle size , but the same gun he uses on cars. We needed to hook up a second compressor, as mine (handy man size) was not keeping up the required pressure. Would pay you to rent a large capacity compressor for the job, as we used two pack.
You need a full helmet & suit.
With Norglass you can soften the finish with a powder, our job ended up semi gloss, the paint is second to none, for quality. Cheers.
