    Bilge Touch Up Question

    Since I installed my new quadrotor motors, we had to do some minor rerigging. I'm going to fill in some empty holes with Marine-Tex. What would you recommend for paint? My bilge is brite white. I'm thinking Awlgrip but I don't know what type or color primer or no. Thanks, Eric

    I used rustoleum oil based gloss white, Worked well and easy to touch up. Used a foam roller and brush. Once it dries its very resistant to gas and oils and cleans up easily.
