The comptip of '07 Getaway is showing a fair amount of wear & tear, the skin coat is chipping in many places. I plan to strip away all the loose & damaged material and then refinish with thickened epoxy (West System). On top of the epoxy, I would like to use some type of rubberized rocker panel/underbody paint or perhaps bedliner spray. Any recommendations?

Flat black grill paint. I shot the comptip on my 1990 18 with a couple coats of it two years ago and it still looks good even after spending two summers in the sun.

I used epoxy appliance paint for the comp-tip and rudders. So far so good.

I've always been told that Vinyl spray paint is best, since it flexes. It also covers loose fibers. Sounds like there are many good options.

I've used Krylon gloss black, seems to stay on pretty well, looks good after two years.
