After a very thorough prep and priming job on the BlackWatch 26, (see the prep video here, and priming video here) it’s finally time to apply the 2-part polyurethane Quantum 99 Topcoat. This paint is a high-solid topcoat which was chosen for its durability and ease of repair. Most imperfections in a Quantum99 paint job (from the paint job itself or from light damage to the hull and paint job) can be easily buffed and polished out of this superior 2-part paint. Brendan will be spraying the paint, onto the hull, a fairly new process for him, and as such Jon Boswell of EMC paints is on hand to give him some tips and show him how it’s done.
Keep in mind, this is a pro doing his first spray job. We understand you might not have a spray booth set up in the garage – or have a compressor and spray guns at the ready, but this paint is easily rolled and tipped and levels itself nicely. We thought showing you how he was taught would be a great way to decide how you want to paint your own boat. And this was using a 3M spray gun bought at an automotive store. Nothing too fancy! Best of all is Quantum99’s repairability once hardened. And we will get to that in the next video! Thanks for watching!
