Default Old painters don't die , they just fade away

And at my age they get more gray. Found this site while researching commercial /industrial finish products and procedures. My background is primarily autmotive restoration and refinishing. Collision repair is becomeing scarcer and the odd jobs in industrial finishing seem to be more common. 35 years ago I was self employed as a autobody/ painter and did my first industrial job , sandblasted and coated 25 big , the size of a small block chevy, gear reduction units that were made for Navy subs. I have finished lots of other unusual stuff, but I'm here to learn the new stuff not reminisce , and offer help from my experience . I know the Sherwin- Williams automotive line well.



Some of my work Gary

Nice motor

I have a job coming up for you if your interested.
Exterior of a home. Remove loose flaking/failing material, treat any algae with fungicidal wash (allow 24hrs before rinsing with clean water; allow to dry), spot prime, caulk/fill as necessary, and 2 full coats of Sadolin Superdec to the cladding.
