Gelcoat Repairs

I'd like some advice please on trying to renovate the nose section of my Osprey Sparrowhawk and her hull.
Is there any way of restoring an overall orange to the nose as well as sort the cracks or do I have to live with the darkened patches?
I expect the hull is more straightforward, image is just an example area.
Oh, and also, is there such stuff as seam tape as I need to repair where the tubes meet the hull at the solid nose or is it just normal tube hypalon cut into strips; what is currently there appears to be thinner than the tube material.
Thanks in advance,
Orve.

I got good results with a 2k paint job,,
Sand primer fill as required more time spent on prep work better results will be gained, I actually done this on the trailer

Can you give me more information please?
What were the steps you used?
If I can get results anything like that then I'll be very pleased!
I know that elbow grease will no doubt be the main ingredient though.
The eps file would be great too.....although mine says Sparrowhawk 5:2 on it as well as the flowery Osprey name.
Cheers,
Orve.
