Zolatone?

I'm planning to refurbish my '73 Sovereign, and I have seen trailers re-done with the interior painted with Zolatone. The company makes lots of different finishes. Is Zolatone a good choice for this trailer? Is it difficult to apply - spray, roller, brush? I would appreciate any ideas you can offer on making the interior look better.

You have a vinyl and plastic interior- its probably going to be tough to get the surfaces prepped. Zolatone was used on aluminum interiors- as well as car trunks...

Zolatone

I've used Zolatone and I like the results. It take the right equipment and prep. You could go to my thread. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f36/ Around post #315 and get some idea of the process and equipment. Zolatone also has web sites where you can go and get good information.

Zolatone can be applied over vinyl wallcovering just fine...as long as it is cleaned thoroughly and appropriately primed first.
