Painting Fiberglass

Anyone attempt to paint the fiberglass cupboards?  What kind of brush or roller would I use?  Do I have to sand it first?  Primer no primer?

 

Thanks

Marine Paint

Probably would have the most success with a Marine paint and a small roller application. I’ve known several people to do a DIY paint job on the exterior of Scamps with marine paint and roller application that have been very successful.

I have spray painted our

I have spray painted our cabinets several times using "rattle cans."  Clean/prep using  Acetone; avoid runs and drips; come out looking good!

Anything special you do with

Anything special you do with the acetone? Someone did a bad paint job on the fiberglass inserts in our 1994 16' Scamp and I'm looking to take it back to white.

Just finished doing Rustoleum

Just finished doing Rustoleum topside marine pain on mine - white on top and sand beige on bottom. Would definitely recommend this :) 

I did rattle can white and plastidip blue on a previous attempt and it was horrible. The plastidip just attracts all the dust and constantly looks dirty. And getting rid of it had me on the brink of jumping off a cliff. Avoid at all costs! haha​

Here's the original state for reference. Get a good sander!

Love, the new paint scheme,

Love, the new paint scheme, you’ve been busy since we saw you at Quartzsite.  How did you apply the marine paint?

Thanks! Just the tip & roll

Thanks! Just the tip & roll route. Actually looked better with just the roller and skipping the brush step. Still need to get my Scamp decals updated cheeky

Different trailers

It looks to me like different trailers,or someone did a nice job of changing windows.

Also if they were mine I would be checking axles,looks like all 3 need replaced.
