Our paints are quality Valspar automotive paints. These are the same products we sell everyday to hundreds of auto body shops. Valspar has been in the paint business since 1804. It's paints have been used on just about everything including Charles Lindburg's plane the "Spirit of St. Louis". The company is very well known in the marine industry as a very high quality paint. Valspar is less known in the automotive arena but the products are comparable to other high quality brands such as PPG, DuPont, and Sikkens. In any event, you will not be dissapointed with our products. We use them ourselves because they are so good.
We sell four different types of paint for outboard motor restoration purposes. All of them will give you satisfactory results and last for many years.
As you can see, we have paint types to satisfy most customers. We do not offer laquers as they are being phased out by the EPA. We use the base/clear system exclusively on our restorations as it provides the best results. It is also much easier to fix when a mistake is made. You can also apply multiple colors or artwork using basecoats and then cover it all with clear.
Correct colors are available in all four types of paint. The colors are produced by either converting original formulas or matching original paintwork or signs. Original paint did vary slightly from lot to lot as color consistancy was not perfect back then. Our colors are accurate to the original formula or item matched but may vary slightly from another original sample.
