    Re: Box Paint Help

    so what all do I need?
    and is there a paint which can help protect the enclosure against moisture?

    Re: Box Paint Help

    im a professional painter for work and am going to be painting mine as well. i'm going to use some oil-based spray primer called cover stain, then a base of oil based exterior paint called iron-clad, (benjamin moore product) ten a can spray crackle finish... if it was me, i would prime first with a good oil primer spray, then some decent quality regular spray paint, just to make sure it sticks really well... i'll be using an airless sprayer for mine though, you might not have one, so spray paint should work just fine...

    Re: Box Paint Help

    I dont want a good looking box, a decent finish with a paint that helps protect against moisture/water. Moisture protection is a necessity.
