Use any good quality automotive paint. I used Pittsburg Paint
(Ditzler is good too) and 4 coats of clear. The paint looks like you
could reach right into it. If you take care of the paint, it will
last 40+ years. A good quality wax (I highly reccomend McGuires
products) and keep her clean will do wonders. The best way to keep
your Amphi looking her best is to stay away from the salt water.

DO NOT use marine paint. Marine paint does not retain it's gloss very
long due to the additives used for the marine enviroment.
