The stringer, fin and logos were masked off. The rails up to the original pinlines were also masked. Then auto acrylic paint was applied. This was also left for two weeks to fully cure before the gloss coats were applied.
I have a small ding repair and restoration business based on the NSW Central Coast 100km Nth of Sydney, Australia. This site has been set up to highlight the restoration side of the business.
Restorations take time. There is plenty going on behind the scenes. So have a look at a new blog in my links. "dpsr behind the scenes." This has incorporated the photos link and will show the day to day stuff that goes on with the restorations and a bit more.
