Go to your nearest paint supplier or W-Mart and buy a spray can of Kilz. This works great.

Painting a Fiberglass Storage Building

This response submitted by Karen S on 10/07/2002. ( )

Hi Guys,

Need your input. We bought a fiberglass storage bin (one that "UPS" uses in the belly of a plane to put parcels in for transport)and it needs painting. Right now it's white. What type of primer (if needed) and paint can I use so that it will stick and not peel. Where can I buy it and roughly how far will it spread. The building is about 10 foot long x 8 foot wide x 7 foot tall Weighs around 630 lbs. We were going to paint it green so it would blend in with the evergreen shrubs that's behind it. Thanks. Karen
