I assume you would be using a sprayer (auto paint type). I have found Menards will carry cheap paint that will work. Just tell them what you are doing and they will help you in the right direction. Follow the instructions on can for you r application (thinning). Another option in Napa or Bumper to Bumper.

You will most likely need some clear coat to go over paint after applied. Check it out on the internet on how to do it and practice on some wood before you spray. I hated rubbing out/sanding paint runs.

Good luck!

I painted the belly pan on mine last year, i used the Krylon fusion paint for plastics, comes in a spray can, and it held up real well. I had to touch up a few spots this year, otherwise it worked good.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
