  • Clear coat or clear gelcoat on S&S stripe

    I will need to do something with my stripe on my S&S in the near future. It is down to the flake. I was all set on spraying clearcoat, but has anyone ever used clear gelcoat on there boat? Both seem about the same price. Would gel hold up better or longer? I would try spraying myself.

    Any thoughts?

      Jim did an amazing restoration, and thread, on his boat. I believe he clear-coated, but I didn't have an hour to go through his thread.

        I believe he did also. Most threads I have read clearcoat is used, but i watched a youtube video the other day where a patch was made on a metal flake boat. The flake was mixed with the clear gel. It looked really nice for some who did the work in their garage. Just got me to thinking....

          That is very interesting.

            Doesnt the metalflake gel have a layer of clear gel over it from the factory? Thats my understanding.

            Im not sure why clear paint would be the preferred method, unless its simply a matter of people being uninformed or afraid of working with gel. The gel will be much more durable.
