    Mac26 D: can I braise Aluminum in making slug gate like in mods on Purple Sage?

    Mast/boom paint.

    I just used Rustoleum oil based paint with a banana roller. No primer just scuffed it with a green 2 inch pad and an air grinder and two coats. Did it about 10 years ago and still holding up fine. Allow about two weeks to dry.
