Would it be ok to use Valspar Tractor & Implement High Gloss Enamel with their enamel hardener over polyester resin? Below is the link to where I found this. My cousin owns a body shop and that is what he recommended. He doesn't deal with fiberglass, so I wanted a second opinion. Any help is greatly appreciated!

It says wood and metal, and for use on pipes and storage tanks......

In my experience anything that will coat wood and metal alike will work well on fiberglass too. That is of course with proper prep (sanding and priming).

The enamle hardener is interesting to me, I'll have to look into it more.

These are more geared color selection to farm equipment colors... there are the ones that you mentioned as well as Oliver Green and some whites. If the store didn't have a better section, I was gonna use some white to change the Oliver Green to a lighter color for the top and the Oliver Green straight for the outside of my 15-4 Gheenoe.

Thanks for the clarification.  I spent 2 years in Texas and Colorado for 5 and haven't heard that... maybe it was in Louisiana?  ;D

I've been using the valspar hardener with regular and marine rustoleum. It's good stuff and does harden the paint, and dry it within a few hours. Only issue is it reduces working time alot so rolling and tipping is harder. Next build I'll be using a gun.

Oh and no issues over glass. ;)
