Thought this might help some in the future. Very easy DIY project.

Finished repairing a pair of scratches on my lower unit that was down to the bare metal. I spent about $45 in supplies and 1 hour of actual labor time. The final appearance is not perfect, but it is functional and protects the lower unit from corrosion.

2 layers of JB Weld
2 layers of Evinrude zinc phosphate primer (0777172)
4 layers of Evinrude smoke color paint (0777177)

Great job, the only thing I would have done differently is take the prop out mask the upper part and paint the entire gear case, you obviously can handle a rattler paint can.

Wow.... I got pretty close to the Evinrude bulletin without ever looking at it. Haven’t had it back in the water yet, but will soon.
