Also, anyone know where I could get a copy of the owners manual for a 2003?
and you can not easily go back to gelcoat. We have stayed with gelcoat only on our unit.
We have used the small colour match kits and the pint clear or white kit.
Make sure that the trailer has been deoxidised first.
Then take the pint can
Mix a drop of brown into two table spoons of pre waxed white gelcoat in one small tray then mix about 2 drops of yellow in two table spoons of white gelcoat in second tray this is your pre mix. Do not add hardener yet. Put gelcoat into a third tray and mix in a very tiny amount of the pre mix yellow and then brown just a very small dab for tint.
Match for area to be fixed on deoxidised trailer.
You can fill in scratches and gouges. They will in include a hardener add it to final mix only, as it will set instructions will be 1 to 2 % in drops. Get it too yellow add more white.
Adding to pint doing full tint of can can be done, it is for those that are experienced at mix as get it to dark and you will need a second can of white to lighten colour.
Save the metal pint inside seal under lid put it back when done and the can will keep for a good amount of time. Large areas would require spray more details needed, but can be brushed on as is from can but put into trays.
Paid a boat repair specialist the teach me how to fix our trailer. Worked together till understood process. The trailer maybe faded more in some areas; so clean deoxidised trailer and match area to be fixed, small batches worked best on our boler
Need more info just ask.
P.S. you can make brown tint but they will also sell it separate. On boler
main colour tint was yellow.
Hope this helps
