    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

    www.gelcoat.ca

    The website lists a lot of BRP colours but not silver, maybe send them an email and ask.

    From experience you can kiss goodbye to it being posted, shipped or any other delivery method if it comes from outside UK.

    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.

    Good luck.
