Orange with a tinge of green

I have a 4.8m Ribcraft that has an orange console, with a tinge of green in places. Hard to describe, will upload pics tomorrow, but presume this is some form of oxidisation and can only be cut out with something like farecla ? ?

Also gave the tubes a good clean, with ribshine, but still some patches of grime/inground dirt, whats best to move it ? Again will get pics tomorrow and have already tried Fairy power spray.

Did this colour change start after you brought it home? Maybe after a few weeks, it will go completely green....

No Will , it was there, looks like oxidisation, just never had any orange grp b4 so all new to me.

On similar subject, have a few small dings in the hull to fill, again orange in colour - only have white filler - can you dye the filler of just paint over the few areas that are done ?

On the orange Avon consoles they normally go blue, I've never seen them go green, try farcia or t- cut and see what happens. If It looks like it's under the gel then you'll have to use wet and dry and then polish.

Does it look like brush strokes?

You can buy the right colour flow coat from ribcraft to make any repairs. You can also buy it from east coast fibre glass if you know the colour bs or ral code.

Definitely not brush strokes. Appears in slight blotches here and there, bit like the shape of Gorbachovs old birthmark kinda thing. Cannot figure out how to post pics, presume I have to host them somewhere first then paste link ?
Have some very fine farecla, will try rubbing it on and see what comes of it.

Attach pics using the paperclip icon over the reply field. It helps if the files are small - around 300k is ideal.

That's what happens when they banned lead in the pigments, its UV damage.

My northcraft has done the same, it goes deep, I've tried sanding and then polishing but its still there. Il live with it.
