I did that. Once. Topcoated with automotive urethane. By the time I was done I could have used Poly-Fiber all the way, would have had a better-looking job, and the airplane would have been considerably lighter. Latex isn't light. And the finish wouldn't have cracked up so soon.You may also look into latex house paint depending on what you are after.
That's a urethane topcoat. Poly Fiber has both PVC Poly Tone (a matte finish but easy to repair) andWhich system do people use where it’s super glossy and wet. I’m not a big fan of that but always wondered
My Fisher had auto enamel over Ceconite 7600, which was a forerunner of the Stewart system. Lots of cracks. When I had to make repairs, I used the Stewart repair technique, which can be used over any system, and topcoated with the original enamel.My biplane originally had auto paint over dope. Lots of cracks before I recovered it. Although latex is not for me, it maybe right for another.
No, that's the urethane topcoat for Ceconite, over dope. Randolph was the dope supplier, but now it's under the same roof (Consolidated Aircraft Coatings) as Poly-Fiber. The Poly-Fiber urethane is Aerothane. For all I know it's the same stuff, but you have to stick to one process for certified stuff so they have both.What’s “Ranthane” from Randolph?
Is that a top coat that’s used on the Polyfiber system?
