I'm replacing the galley pump and the new pump hole don't match up with the new. So I fiber glassed over the old and I'm about to paint it. I had to paint the boat a couple of years ago and bought some paint and hardener. Anybody have a guess to how much hardener I need to mix with the paint. Its going to be in the engine compartment, not real noticeable but I'd still like to do a good job.
Once I get the holes filled then I'll mount the new pump and have fresh water available.
Can't answer with any certainty without knowing what kind of paint...
common paints are anywhere from 1:1 to 1:8 hardner to base... and then maybe 5 - 30% thinner depending on the paint and application, type of thinner, etc..
one POSSIBLE indication is the size of the cans - often times manufacturers package the hardner and base in sizes proportionate to the mix ratio... I wouldn't rely on this... what kind / brand of paint is it???
Its Martin Senour paint. Its acually automotive paint but I used it a couple of years ago on part of the hull on the boat. Add hardener just cant remember how much. I got one quart of paint and on 8 oz of hardener. Nothing else on the cans. Bought them at NAPA.
not try ing to confuse anyone , put............... i have paints that i mix 3 to 1 / 3 parts color - 1 part activator - 1 part reducer unless it is 2% voc you skip the reducer , or better yet, call or go over to NAPA
