Here's the story. I was never happy about the shine on my 91 Stalker 26 as it wouldn't shine up very well. Tried wet sanding, compound and wax but still looked lousy. Even a detailer friend tried,so I decided to paint it. After hours of sanding and prep, I sprayed the epoxy primer,sanded that with 400 grit,another coat and more sanding. Finally got a decent day and sprayed with Pettit ezpoxy. Came out pretty good.
