Default 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

For awlgrip use snow white.

Check out my project thread in the apache forums to see how mine came out. It is blinding white.

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.
