    For the plastics? They are available but they dont cross over into many shops systems. You can acquire them from your dealer.

    Gelcoat is a very thick (.020") 2-part coating, and not paint. The closest paint to gelcoat is the 2-part Imron. And, it depends if you want to do a repair below the waterline or above the waterline... Ron

    if your only looking to repair damage on your ski the best way is to use gel-coat but if you do not know how to use gel-coat... you can also spray it with automotive paint. you can fix and blend the repair just like you would on a car. if you use car paint you will always see a haze where the blend was and it will not look perfect or match perfect but not bad either.

    now if you were just looking to change the color of your ski... automotive paint is the way to go... sand it and paint just as you would a car and it will stick and work just fine. i would not paint the bottom of the ski i would only go as far as painting the lower sides not the bottom at all.

    hope this helps...
