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.
