Finally got some paint ordered and it arrived today. I decided to go with the parkers duck boat paint in the sand tan. Got it off of Cabelas website for $15 a quart.

When I was purchasing the self etching primer I saw they had automotive paint in about a quart size container. The colors were limited but they had a nice red that caught me eye. ...
