Who's the Best Mercury Outboard Cowling Painter in the Central Florida Area?
I want to get my Mercury 200 EFI cowling repainted and put a fresh set of decals on it. About 15 years ago I had a 150 cowling I took to an auto paint shop that claimed they had a color match camera that would give me the EXACT same color. It was more like a dark brown and I was VERY disappointed.
I think Merc calls their black "phantom black". Its totally black. I have seen repainted Merc cowlings that had a mirror smooth perfectly polished finish that I would like to have. I don't know how they get, but that's what I want. Do they wet sand, buff and polish? Because it seems like just auto-body style painting you end up with this slightly bumpy surface they call "orange peel", a good description.
Anyone know an outboard paint shop in central Florida that can fix me up?
