Painting Our Dorade Cowls
|The dorade cowls had a white interior--it could be paint or |
powder coating. In any event it is somewhat boring.
The first step in the process was removing
and cleaning each cowl.
|Close up view of black spots (probably mold) on the |
inside surface of the cowls before cleaning.
|I taped off the edges of the dorade cowls with very short strips of tape so |
that I could match the rounded edges. I have used this technique many
times before on other projects. It is time consuming but it works great.
|The first coat of paint was very spotty with many white streaks. |
It was obvious that two coats of paint was needed.

The wide angle lens makes the dorade cowls look much larger.
This was a simple project that cost less than $25 and made an nice improvement in appearance. It only took a couple hours of time spread over a couple days.
