98-Pro785 gel coat
Does anyone know where to buy the Matching Gel Coat for the Porsche Red and the white for the Pros?
I do not want paint,
I want after market or real Polaris,

White gelcoat is just that.--White.doesnt matter. The Red could be made by cross referencing the ditzler code I gave ya. A Gel-coat marine repair store may be able to match it up.
Email US Composites and tell them the code and see if they can match it.

I tried that with the local Johnson Resin supply here in Houston,
The white was so bone white that it lookes way off,
and the red looks blood red, and real dark,
every time they mix up a batch it gets worse,
the one place AWL GRIP just does paint.
I thought for sure someone would still have the repair kits,

Does your hull white color have a bluish tint in it? I guess its possible the original white on the ski is not exactly white. it could be tinted some what. I'm not sure about that.. we need someone from the polaris paint shop back in the day to tell us..
Maybe a member on here has actually bought the ditzler brand bright white already and can tell us.
it may just look dark in the can too and your worrying for nothing. my red on my pro is red as red gets.lol
How did they match the color? usually a paint place will want a sample of 1 inch by 1 inch or bigger. if it has a clear over it, that changes the base color recipe too.
Now that AWL-GRIP IS SOMETHING ELSE. Incredible paint. But pricey.$$$ 280.00/gallon or more now probably.. Iv'e seen 40 foot boats with awl-grip paint jobs on them. wow, sheets like glass. Hard as nails. doesnt chip, barely scuffs.
If your gonna keep it in the water all the time, stick with the gelcoat.
