    So I am looking to redo the side carpets on the right and left side of the helm. It looks like some type of exterior carpet. I am not sure if I want to use some vinyl head liner and two part glue. Or if I should sand the fiberglass and gelcoat it. Has anyone ever done this before?

    That does look similar to what’s been on mine for a long time and still looks ok but I feel gelcoat will be easier to keep clean.
