        This stuff is great. Used the white and gray. Used grey for the black paint. Made a big transformation. My boat went from white to black and looks like a pro did it.

              This mixed well and rolled on nice and smooth. I have gw invader and the condition before was all sanded and covered most of spider cracks. I recommend two coats on any surface condition. Nothing was really bad about this primer.

                  Comments about Interlux Brightside Pre-kote, White, Gallon:

                  I do alot of boat work from transom jobs to small repairs, I picked this up in a pinch, never used it before. It says on the can that it sands easily but it doesant. It clogs sand paper right away, it's gummy when dry. Can says sandable in 18 hours, I'm over three days, it was still sticky at 18 hours, and it's been very warm out. Now I'm going to have to buy a high build primer to bury this stuff.
