Looks are not too important, but an easy job and long-lasting results are where 
I'm at! Chances are, the looks will be there as an added benefit!

Thanks for the tips, I will let you know how it works out!

  You're going to want to sand off the flakes. If it flakes and you paint it, 
the paint will flake. Caution - if you sand fiberglass, take steps to avoid 
breathing the dust.

  Pettit Easypoxy is a one part polyurethane that goes on beautifully (with a 
good, fine brush) and will last for many years. It is made for marine use, 
including fiberglass boats. You can get it at your local marine store or mail 

  Any really good paint for fiberglass isn't going to be cheap. Count on $25 - 
$40 for a pint of paint and a good brush - but it will look fantastic.

    I replaced the control box (apparently some type of fiberglass compound)
    about 12 years ago...the interior components are still in good shape but the
    exterior of the box is starting to "flake" due to solar radiation and or
    exposure to the elements.

    Anyone know of a good paint, PVC, or other compound I can brush over it to
    seal it, stop the deterioration, and buy another 10+ years?

    Thanks and 73
