just applied this paint over the weekend. High gloss and great workability. Used the brush and tip method, came out great. Wish I had the time to sand between coats but the finish product looks great.

By no means do I know how to spray paint. I got a free sprayer with by compressor and had never used it. Mix this product exactly as the can indicates, practice on a flat board, dial-in your spray gun to "your" pace and you will really enjoy the process and finish.

Last time I repainted topsides was in 1991 and they still were decent.

We have found that using a last coat or two of clear Awldrip over Awlbrite provides better abraision resistance to the finish. We typically use 2 coats pentrating epoxy CPES on bare wood until setup and solvents have evaporated but still green then 5050 with west 105/207 then one coat 105/207 or system 3 ,sand smooth, 3 coats Awlbrite 24 hoursor less apart, sand smooth, 3 more coats Awlbrite 24 hours or less apart, sand smooth , then 2 coats Awlgrip clear that now has stood up to 3 years of use on a boat we see regularly and 5 according to the owner of a boat we did in 2007. This system requires that NO moisture get in behind your coatings. We have used it on Mahogany and properly deoiled Teak . I believe that the epoxies expand and contract with the wood somewhat sparing the harder suface coats from failure due to expansion and contraction. UV will get at this stuff and this year another coat of Awlbrite then one of Awgrip will go on the job from 2007 assuming that the substrate is stable. Ill keep readers posted when we order again
