    Painting outdrive

    I need to paint the bottom of my outdrive......some paint rubbed off while I was parked at a sandbar. Last time I just sprayed a light coat of black spray paint on it but of course it didn't look that great. What do you guys use for touch up stuff like this?

    Self etching primer and Merc Phantom Black for touch ups. It works good. Sand the area smooth first.

    Ah ok...didn't know Merc sold paint, cool.

    Too Old - I'd like to do it that way but don't have the funds right now

    It's not really that big of a spot....I'm just picky about it and like to look at a good shiney outdrive.

    phanton Black paint

    yes merc sells touch up spray paint in a can ,But the best is to take it to a reputable body shop and let them prep and paint it with a acraylic enamal or lacquer using a hardner, after 3 days of drying it will last and look like new/Darin
