FRP - Filon source and paint

Postby Renee » Thu Jun 01, 2006 10:44 am

HI! I've been lurking for quite some time - your forum is incredible! I was wondering is someone would have sources for FRP panels or Filon panels/skins and what paint works best for them (I want a two-tone with forest green on the bottom) Thanks! Renee in Iowa

Hey Renee , welcome to the madness!
I used FRP on my TD & am very happy with it. I have been parking it outside all the time & have yet to have any UV issues as has been dicussed on this forum. It washes up very nicely & no stains,( its parked under a cherry tree!) I found the panels at HD & Lowes. About 28 to 30. bucks each.
Check out my album for pics. Cause we all love da pics! I'm sure you'll hear this again soon! Good luck with your build! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Renee-

Hey & welcome!

Best source I've found for Filon:

As far as paint, try the relatively new spray paints for "Plastics" only. I believe Krylon & Rustoleum both make a version.

Try it on a sample before committing!

Cheers,

Coop
