Picked up the trailer yesterday from Scott at E-Blast dustless sand blasting in Menifee, CA. They did an amazing job. All new paint, wiring, lights and bunks!

What kind of paint are you using?  Iíve been trying to find someone to paint my boat, but Iím not sure if automotive paint is ok or not.. the boat certainly doesnít sit in the water for more that an over night if even that long...  pretty much no one around me wants to shoot it with regular paint.

It's been a very long process to get to this point but the paint is finally done! We had some technical issues with some of the paints, but Khaos Kustom Paints (Mike Buschman and James Rankin) finally got her done late last night.

Big thanks to Tamco Paints for donating the materials and thank you to the following people who jumped in and helped out for the past few days...and thank you to their spouses/families for being understanding as we hammered through some very long nights.

James Rankin
Mike Buschman
Kelly Buschman
Brian Couey
Painter Dave
Joe Balakoski

Also thank you to Gary Lewis Electric for letting us use his paint booth!

We're super excited to have everyone come together next weekend to help us find this boat a new home!

What did you paint the stringers with or is that just a stain?
