Hey everyone -- so we did a near-complete renovation
of our 1988 Scamp
last year but didn't quite finish all of the gelcoat rework required for the camper before we put it up for the season. Fast forward to another year of system prep (now prep for sale) and our reserve gelcoat has basically kicked the bucket and refuses to cure. We'd picked up five gallons of gelcoat from Scamp
directly last year to use and unfortunately I confirmed with them that they can't ship gelcoat from their factory (but they do sell it).
Our upper half is 75% or more coated with new Scamp
gelcoat (the original was badly discolored/yellowed) but needs some intermittent patching and a full new coat on the very top before I'll be totally happy with it. That means that if we want to have a reasonable aesthetic look, the gelcoat has to be color-matched to the Scamp gelcoat.
Tl;dr, does anyone have experience gelcoating Scamp trailers with something other than Scamp gelcoat in patches and did y'all do any color matching to make it happen? We're looking at TotalBoat, Fiberglass Depot, and Evercoat (probably not this one because it's so damn expensive), and some at least have colorants, but we have no experience with any of these.
(or, anyone near Backus want to pick up and ship us a gallon?)
