    Hi Mario,

    Scratch repair kits can not be manufactured for metallic Gelcoats. WE only
    sell liquid gelcoat when it comes to metallics.

    Kind Regards,


    i am gonna try some nail polish for a quick fix for now. its not to bad but i know its there.

    The problem with the silver gel on the PXs is that its metallic. About impossible to spot repair, but I am no expert on the matter.
