Matching gel coat color

Postby Charlie0 » Sat Sep 28, 2019 7:10 am

As a noted in a previous thread here somewhere and for anyone who is interested....I find that Pettit Ez Poxy white and Hatteras white mixed 50/50 is pretty much a perfect match to my 34 year old gelcoat.

Great timing, thanks! I was just at the store a few weeks ago looking at color chips trying to figure out which colors to try to match my '74 GB63 for a flybridge paint job in the spring (original gel or subsequent coating is all cracked). I'll use high build epoxy primer to fill and smooth, them probably roll and tip to limit the mess/masking of spraying.

Doing my flybridge also. Painted a few test patches with the EZY Poxy. Hard to find them in all light conditions. I was told to purchase the Epifanes rollers by a fellow with a nice paint job. No personal experience yet....
