Can the Boral be painted with the usual solvent-based alkyd and urethane enamels?

Howard,

Yes, you can use solvent based paints on the Boral. Our "normal" paint used on the coaches is an acrylic latex. So far so good with using the Boral. It's use is limited to non-structural applications as it has no real strength.
