What brand of Gloss did you use?

was it dulux or a proprietary brand?

I assume it has to be solvent based and for outside use?

Hang on, I'll check the tin..........

Primer : Dulux For Metal (grey solvent based)

Undercoat : Crown Pure Brilliant White (solvent based for wood and metal, interior and exterior)

Top Coat : I have used *cough* Satinwood For Wood and Metal.

Try and get some trade Gloss if you want a shine, otherwise for a more Matt finish try satinwood.


if you want some varnish rollers to apply it which I have been told are better than brushing it on, I can give you some new ones Tuesday?

If it doesn't go on too thick you will get a good result but if it does run, wait for it to harden and then do another coat.

I've left mine with the first coat for now.

i was going to go with Scooter Red Gloss from the dulux range, I guess it doens't matter as long as the primer/undercoat is white....

Cheers, i'll take you up on the rollers

Aslong as it's solvent based and for exterior use you will be fine.

I'll bring the rollers tuesday then.

I'm going to redo mine soon and T-Cut it when it's gone hard.

I think it should be LAW that anyone in the Dulux bunch should paint their vehicle a different colour for summer every year!!

I need to dig out the dulux colour chart again.

i read the dulux colour chart the otherday and they dont actually say that satinwood is suitable for exterior use - only interior !
the same for egshell which is another semigloss
only gloss is stated as suitable for exterior use !

just thought id share that with you

im going with weather sheild semigloss on mine ! :D

:oops: at least i think its recomended for exteriors! perhaps i should giv them a ring?
