Thank you David, i recon i will strip it back with paint striper because im pretty lazy with preparation and stuff like that ( i actually work like a dog in real life).
I also dont plan on removing the power head but have pulled down the lower leg to replace all seals etc.
P.S. Did i actually call it a " Merk"

Hi all, yeah im new here. Ive got a very low hrs, fresh water only '62 Merk 700. It runs like a swiss watch after carb clean out etc.
I've decided to paint the "cloud white" exterior and buff up the shiny bits , so can i paint strip the alloy cowl and leg etc or do i just rub it back or even get it blasted ? I just havent done an outboard before.
While im at it, what paint do you guys recomend ?
             Cheers, Darryl.

Are you 100% sure you are getting full throttle ? The fact its been swapped and changed, it may not be adjusted right.
