Thanks again for all of the great help regarding my request for information on painting my outboard. I bought the Tempo zinc chromate primer and the matching topcoat in johnson white. However, my local marine store doesn't seem to have sandable primer in a spray can. Should I just use one of the sandable auto primers or is there a prefered product anyone has? Thanks again.

You have your "sandable" primer Spectrout it is the zinc chromate! Use this right on the motor as the primer you can sand this after it is dry (should try for at least 2 coats, 3 to 4 is better).

I noticed I goofed in the other post on the last part of finishing. It should read 48 hours not 24 after the last coats are sprayed before compounding. Good luck -- Tom

PS oops didn't realize your using white finish paint, suggest you use the yellow zinc easier to cover than the green zinc.

Yup, don't woory about the sandable primer, if youv'e prepped the motor well, you won't need to sand. I'd go ahead and use the green since you have it. I used it and the Johnson white top coat covered it very well.

PS: Wear a mask!
