Roof paint

Post  mikero on Sat 02 Sep 2017, 9:20 am

I generally repaint the roof of my Foden before each rally as it it is very difficult to get all the grease and dirt off. I had a tin of Ivory White enamel from Rustoleum, I think, but when I dug it out to do the roof before Boconnoc I found it had dried up and died and I could not find the same paint anywhere. The man at my local Brewers recommended an enamal from Bradite designed for steelwork that had a similar colour.

This was applied and looked very good but, remarkably, it wiped clean with just cold water. No kitchen cleaner or detergent needed to get the grease off, it just washes away. Every morning at Dorset I wiped it over and the roof looked freshly painted. The only problem now is I have got a whole tin of paint I am never going to use up.

You could invest in a Showman's Mike as they have a rely big roof to use up your paint on.
