Rxp x 2009 gel coat needed
Hi can anyone recommend someone I can get some gel coat off to match my silver 2009 rxp x for a small repair we can't match it in the uk. Cheers

I did think that lol but it's right on rear corner so the sticker is likely to come unstuck which could happen during a kneck and kneck race and I can't chance losing. Thanks

I tried and my tiny shipment was picked up and returned to sender. I also tried via Sweden, where I'm living right now, same thing. All UK suppliers only have general gelcoat products, so matching is a bitch.
I managed to track down some OEM gelcoat (manufacturer Gelcote CA) in Sweden. It was the standard jet black from 2008 onwards. The match was very good but not 100%.
First time I'd ever tried gelcoating and the results were awesome. Just watch YT vids/tutorials, take it slow and don't burn through the surrounding gelcoat when you rub down.
