Grey Gelcoat

Before the boat goes back in the water for this year, I need to touch up a very minor bit of surface damage on the hull. Andre at Parker is not able to bring any back from Poland until after the relaunch.

Does anyone know where I might obtain the following (or very near)

N162 Military Grey from Neste range

Thanks for help

Steve

Contact the above. You'll need a litre of clear gelcoat, 1/2 ltr of Mil Grey pigment, activator and a bag of Colloidal Silica.

The silica thickens the g/coat to form a paste (filler).

I don't like CFS, I find East Coast Fibreglass to be much better, top shelf service.
