Wow that looks totally awesome, not to mention it's latex. Thanks for the update. (Can you tell I have a paint job coming up?) I had another idea today about water base polyurethane spar varnish. I used it on a kayak once, and it's really simple stuff. It was recommended in the kayak plans for an extra shiny finish and UV protection. I really couldn't imagine it cracking, or not adhering to the latex. It is smeared on with a paper towel, in a few very thin coats. Anybody else have experience with this stuff, or know about it's capabilities?
