    Just curious... Are you painting the ski a different color for looks or are you painting over scrapes/chips?

    Upper deck above the bumper line is SMC painted but the bottom hull below the bumper line is GEL COATED on the hand laid fiberglass.

    You might have contacted a wrong headquarters office... it's not in Santa Ana CA
    Not since 1986.

    Regardless, people in consumer serives are not really technical either.
