Help required - I need to paint the europa - it was white out of the factory but is now red - should I stick with red and if so has anyone got the paint code /ral number 

Would it be better to put on isolator first - I have painted a few cars but I havnt painted fibreglass before so advice would be great thanks. Would I need to add a plasticiser??

If you want a decent job most people strip the paint back to the fiberglass before repainting, but it's a big job.

The factory finish was an epoxy primer and cellulose top coats, which is usually not too bad to strip. If it's been repainted it could be anything. 2 pack is a *** to strip.

Sinkage over previous repairs is an issue on fibreglass.

I can't help more than that.

Good luck.
