POR-15 Topside Yacht Enamel

Has anyone used POR-15 Topside Yacht Enamel to paint the top of their AS to seal and protect?

Interesting product. I've had excellent results with POR-15 but not this product. I'd also be interested to know if its suitable.
What I need is something like that for my bath pan and sink area too if I thought I could get it on smooth.

I painted a 25' sailboat with Brightside and I am preparing my 34' sailboat to be painted with Brightside, very good product. I like it better than Imron.

Good place to purchase.

For the bath pan and sink area, I used the Por-15 Whitecote:

http://www.por15.com/PRODUCTS/PRIMER...8/Default.aspx

I tried brushing on for the first coat, but it's so thin that I got drips in the paint. The second coat I used a spray gun. The whitecote hardens and looks awesome. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. See this other thread for pictures of balrgn's results with the same product in the bathroom:

http://www.airforums.com/forum...ight=whitecote

Because of my success with other Por products, I might use the POR-15 Topside Yacht Enamel on the roof. I've see that others have used the Interlux Brightside, but I like the fact you can get the Por-15 product in gray.

Extremely impressive link there moss. Why gray though for the top? Newer Airstreams have baked on white tops and I think I read it averages 7 degrees cooler then aluminum/gray in the summer heat but I can appriciate if you want it all gray. Amazing photos from that link. I'm all over it for the sink and shower pan. Thanks for the vendor link Jim.

How has the Interlux Brightside held up? Any cracking or peeling? Has it chalked down the side like I've heard Kool Seal can? Thanks

The second link above is dead.

68, I just left the AS factory and was told/saw gray now being used on the roofs. I asked Don, the tour guide about the change from white and he did not have an ans?
