No problem, i used crystic topcoat with the orange pigment from Scott Bader, this is gel coat but in a thinner form capable of being sprayed on and you can get an excellent finish with it if you have the right conditions.
A few months ago i would have sprayed it on but too cold now and i don't have access to a paint shop.

For me it just looked dull, if it is intended for commercial use far enough, but for private us it was not very exciting!

Fair play, it's not one of mine. It looks like the brokerage part of the website is closed at the mo.
