Painting a Pool Slide
 
I'm looking for someone who has repainted a pool slide...or so some suggestions. We were given a slide which I intend to hook to upper deck so we can slide down into pool. I used some Wizard stuff for fiberglass with a buffer which brought back some shine then waxed with paste wax...looks much better but still needs repainting to add to my newer deck and pool. Is there something besides gel coat. Thought about usiong Krylon Fusion paint but need a slick coating over it. THANKS! Tammi

What about marine fiberglass hull paint. Made to flex and it is slick so junk won't grow on it.

Great idea, but.... "I used some Wizard stuff for fiberglass with a buffer which brought back some shine then waxed with paste wax" It's going to have a heckuva time sticking to a paste waxed surface..... Perhaps if totally stripped?

Yeah, she's up a creek on that. Anything she paints on will require complete de-waxing and de-greasing now.

This reminded me of a job I got hired for years ago. A guy wanted me to air-brush the word "Watermelon" on his boat.
I designed the whole thing, (even made the letters look like pieces of watermelon, complete with black seeds!) and told him he had to 100% remove the wax so it'd work ok. After I sprayed all colors on and it looked fantastic and was dry, he wiped his hand over it and it rolled right off. :eek: He had used TW RUBBING COMPOUND thinking it was a wax remover....... *sigh* after I re-prepped the area, I did it all over again..... :laughing:

I've never seen an UNANSWERED question in our paint section, so I'd have to agree.
