Thanks JJ! Do you have any brands / suppliers you can recommend?

I’m with UH on this, acrylic enamel is tough enough to withstand rough treatment the cockpit gets. Rust-o-Liam works well on metal parts. Your local auto paint store will have AE and a good supply of paint related supplies, masking tape, masking sheet, brushes, rollers, etc. Ace Hardware has a wide variety of rattle can spray paint. Pick up grey, flat black, red, yellow, blue and green for the control handles . A first class job will include re-painting the canopy rail. Carefully mask the paint line and then re-mask the cover sheet to the first tape. Mask the outside too...........a few extra minutes here will save an afternoon removing overspray on your canopy. Flat black here and on the glare shield. Best to spray the canopy off the bird, upside down on horses. Good wintertime project.

Change the cockpit stickers, too Wings & Wheels has them.

I use the following for most stuff.
Interior major: Sherwin Willaims 2nd Dimension acrylic enamel number1656533-A RAL7037 Dusty Gray using semi flat base. Used with hardener and applied with 3 inch fabric roller.
Gray spray for metal: Zero Rust 61SP- Gray. This is a primer but gives a nice finish and is close in color to Schleicher.
Satin Black: SEM 39143 Trim Black. This provides a very nice satin finish like the black trim on your car. Makes a good finish for panels. Also good for glare shields and canopy frames when used with texture below.
Textu For parts that need a bit of texture, like panels, I spray a light to moderate coat of Rustoleum Textured Black part number 7220. A day later I over coat with The SEM Trim Black.
FWIW

I’ve had good success using Klass Kote epoxy paint. Used a foam roller to apply it. Ended up giving it a nice texture. Once it cured it’s incredibly hard.

I am looking to freshen up the interior of an old Grob 102. Mainly just want to put a new coat of paint on the interior walls of the cockpit. Any recommendations for paint I should be using? I prefer to brush it on rather than spray. I saw some enamel paint at Lowes but it says "oil-based" on it. I assume oil would be bad to put on the fiberglass? Just want to be sure whatever i use won't do anything to the glass.

thanks!


I've used Zolatone speckle paint on the interior of composite belly pods. It's bullet proof.
