is it paint or gelcoat? i bet its a pain to get it all off.
It is super easy... when it starts pealing do a sub then when another piece starts flaking up do another sub. NO acutualy mine started pealing and I used a razor blade to get under the piant and striped 1/2 the hood in about 2 minutes. I stoped there because I was getting hot and needed to ride.
Why does the paint come off so easy. its not the first ski ivew seen like this.Amost all blue skis have no paint on the hood.
It will only strip off the hood because that is the only thing that is painted on the ski. Everything else is gel coat so you don't have to worry about paint flaking off.
It doesnt stick well because of the mold release agent on the surface of the SMC and YAM dont prep it before paint. Also the bottom hull is SMC and is all painted too. The bottoms are known for peeling too.
The only thing that's gel coated on a SJ is the top deck.
Color-rite paint will not be gas or solvent resistant like a auto body paint will be, because there is no hardener in it.
