Here's the story. I was never happy about the shine on my 91 Stalker 26 as it wouldn't shine up very well. Tried wet sanding, compound and wax but still looked lousy. Even a detailer friend tried,so I decided to paint it. After hours of sanding and prep, I sprayed the epoxy primer,sanded that with 400 grit,another coat and more sanding. Finally got a decent day and sprayed with Pettit ezpoxy. Came out pretty good.

As far as?
What type/ size spray gun? Was the compressor a small mobile unit? Or a big high CFM shop compressor?


Grew up in the autobody business and know a lot about painting cars but have never sprayed gel coat. I would imagine you need a gun that can put out more volume.

I use this gun for gel and it turned out it did Imron just as well

Here is the gelcoat I did you can see my compressor as well nothing special. Gel by nature is orange pealy and dull,there are additives you can use to help but it needs to be sanded and polished.

30 gallon shop compressor,a Harbor Freight gun with a built in regulator kept about 30 psi. The paint is EZpoxy by Pettit. I have never sprayed gel coat so I can't answer that question.That Shamrock looks sharp by the way.
