Have any pictures of it maybe at 20' and a close up? I asked some local fiberglass places but they had no clue. I wonder if I could figure out what ingredient makes wrinkle finish paint wrinkle and test it out.
Get the spray cans of Trunk Paint. It has a splatter nozzle that will put a texture on it. Then go over with a fine mist of a good quality of paint. Krylon has a nice nozzle for laying down the paint. Also Eastwoods new 2 part paint have a very big spray pattern.
If you have a decent spray gun use a large tip designed for Primer. Something in the 1.8-2.3mm size. Turn the air pressure way down. like 10-15 psi and the fluid flow all the way up. That will spit really large globs. Use a thicker 2 part paint with very little reducer. That should give you a pretty good pattern.
Just experiment with air pressure and fluid thickness to get the pattern you like.
Prepping to tackle a top texture and re-paint. Any more thoughts or recommendations on this texture topic? Has anyone used other texture products (like wall textures??) and then sprayed over them with regular paint?
CBRogers - What type of spray Trunk Paint do you recommend?
I topped it with 1 coat rustoleum fiberglass topside primer and 2 coats rustoleum fiberglass topside paint, all with a foam roller.
I reason I didn't try the trunk paint was that the different colors and textures in the can are achieved with a combination of oil and water based paints so they stay separate. I was worried that the oil based primer would start to dissolve the texture. Hope this helps.
