Paint/lacquer?

Postby ancientbugger » Fri Feb 26, 2016 10:44 am

I'm at the moment rubbing my old manx back to gelcoat with the idea of a respray but I would like an input as the gelcoat isn't coming up that bad, in fact when it's wet it looks like new. So I was wondering could I put a clear coat straight over the rubbed down gelcoat? I originally sprayed it some years ago as the red had faded to pink (not a good look) but if a knowledgeable person on here could point me in the right direction it would be most appreciated.
