    I have to repair a rear fibreglass panel and then I need to paint the repair

    I am OK with the glassing, but I have always used spray paint in the past

    I need to brush the area as its difficult to get to

    Any suggestion as to what type of paint to use

    thanks in advance

    Having owned several fibreglass boats almost any type of paint works I would use your normal spray paint.

    Zinnesser 1 2 3 the red one, NOT! the water based blue.

    Dries in 7 mins, (throw the brush away) Use it as an u/coat, put it over anything, and put anything over the top of it. Magic stuff
