I have a well used pair of Cressi freedive fins, they are in excellent working order but are scratched somthing cronic and I think could use a paintjob, covering the scratches and changing the colour in the process.
Any ideas on what I could use to do this?
Cheers in advance
Joe

Earl Scheib will paint those fins for only $49.95!!!!
Seriously, I don't really think you can paint anything for underwater.
Depending on what your fins are made of, you might be able to fill the scratches with similar material, sort of "welding" them.
But hey, scratches say "veteran", you don't want to cover up your career, do you?

Hehehehe,
Guess im not really bothered about the scratches, they are fast becoming the last piece of equipment I havnt customised in any way... Maybe Ill just find a nice pair of 'No Fear' stickers for them!

paint job...

I have the equipment to paint your fins if you like, say 10£ and I'll do the job..:) bring them down to Exeter and I airbrush them over the weekend if you wish.. I have a airbrush that does the work, just little thinner cleaning and paint will stick fairly well, although to avoid new scratches to apear you'd need a plastic covering over the paint so I don't know if it would be worth the money...but it's up to you to decide

Sorry for digging out this stoneage thread :D

Do you have some pics of airbrushed fins, ect?

Ever tried to airbrush a wetsuit?

I thought about giving my black elios suit some kind of custom look by airbrushing a cool motive on it. Like the 'elios freediver' (from their sticker)...
Or something completely different.
And while I'm at it i could enhance my fins as well.

Cheers,
Sascha
