1998 GP1200 is OEM Paint or gelcoat ?
I recently baught a 98 GP1200,
the previous owner painted the entire ski (top and bottom) glossy black with automotive paint.
I am wanting to know is OEM on these skis gel coat on the bottom and paint on the top deck ?
I got the ski for my wife and she loves the black color, but wants to repaint it with a black with hot pink graphics.
what are your thought on this ?

The GP1200 is SMC (Sheet molded compound) and are not gelcoated. I think the color is molded in but it could be paint. I can't remember for sure. either way, I believe gelcoat won't stick to SMC so you'll need to paint it to change the color. And you have to use the correct primer and paint to make it stick.

I will do some more searching on this.
