After lightly sanding the finish primer on the new hatch, I masked off the field/center area so I could spray the gloss white on the borders. Here, I chose a 3/4″ border width, since there was ample border width on the adjacent surfaces in the boat and there seemed no need nor desire for a wider strip on the hatch.
After final preparations, I applied three coats of snow white gloss topcoat to the borders over the course of the day.
