Grey came out bluer than I wanted, but it'll be one color. Of course, I realized that with color on the foot, the leg now needs attention. Time to start tearing that down now...

That's what I used Trey and it turned out great. Make sure you have a good coverage with the clear coat if subjected to fuel the paint will start to peel. Looking good!!!

Haven't found my color yet... Just that it's a light grey. I'll have to go through the Rust-Oleum isle and find one. Not too worried about perfection, it was just mostly bare metal with some primer yellow green on it. Now it's at least all one color and clean.

Where do you get the scotch Brite pads? Big box stores? Hardware store?

Not sure of the paint color code for the 57 Evinrude. The motor cover is black and white, but the lower unit is a medium grey...


looks good Trey, i like the handles......now is the time if you need or want to use glazing putty to clean up any sore spots you dont like.......reprime the spots, then from there i giver a good rub with the green scotch brite pads.....i dont get crazy, as it is a working, under the water unit, prone to scuffs the first time out.....have fun, glad you found your color........
