    Remember Single stage paint while not as pretty goes on thick and in most cases is more durable for our application. Remember a very fancy custom job looks great but requires more care and concern when getting on the ski from the beach (rocks and sand in your shoe sole) going to the dock (dock rash) and so one. A nice white ski can look HOT with the right graphics and seat cover.

    Good Luck

    Does anyone know any other place to get oem paint than colorrite? They're prices are outrageous. Do you need to spray clearcoat on the ski as well?

    I have tried to match OEM with every book and PPG online with no luck.

    For the Hull; as Christian said, a single stage is a great choice.

    For the Plastics; use a base/clear with your choice of pearl or flake.

    A good body shop can match or change to any color with little cost. The time$$$ is in the prep work. If you can do the scuffing, cleaning and racking you'll save a ton. For big stuff you will save $ by having a pro lay up the paint.
