Based on a recommendation that I read here on the forum (I think by Turbo, but not sure) I used:

Dupli-Color Adhesion Promoter UPC# 026196341990 for a primer, after wiping the poles down with bleach. I used bleach because I was afraid that something like MEK, or mineral spirits, might cause the material to get tacky. The Adhesion Promoter dries very fast. You can handle and paint it after about 30 minutes or less.

Dupli-Color Trim Paint UPC# 026916900700 for the actual paint. The Trim Paint dries to a semi gloss finish which matches the awning arms very well.

Three of the four arms operate fine without scraping the paint on the inner tube. The fourth one is scratching the paint on the inner arm, and I think it is because there is a burr of some sorts on the inside of the outer tube. When I finish waxing (probably two more days) I'll pull that one apart and find something to ream out the outer tube, and repaint the inner tube.

I bought my primer and paint at O'Reilly's Auto, but many of the Auto Stores carry Dupli-Color.

I also primed and used the same paint on the Upper Mount and Stowage brackets.

Hope this helps.

RodeoGeorge

3 sets left ready to ship and 1 set available for custom length poles for a motorhome and then the shop is closed.

Better get 'em now if you want 'em. This is the last batch.
