suggestions - painting a Skylon

I bought a used Skylon from Jim at BAWS (thanks Jim). The Skylon is blue and my boat is white, black and grey. I'm afraid regular old spraypaint would chip off. I checked into getting it sprayed with black "Line-X" (the spray on bedliner stuff) but they wanted $175 to spray it...so much for saving money by buying a used one.

Any alternate ideas? Thanks!

Get it powder coated!! I actually shortened mine and did some customization to it and I just had the local powder-coater do it for $25. White is very common, so they can throw it in with a large batch and cut the price do substantially! Good Luck!

I'm not familiar with how they do powder coating. Would it have to be sand blasted? Or can they powder coat over the existing powdercoat / paint?

They will sandblast it there, prior to coating...

Yes, powder coating is the only way to go. You will get a tougher and better finish.
