Paint Stripper on gelcoat! Help!
No lectures please...
I made a mistake and used the wrong kind of paint stripper to remove the varnish on my handrails. I got a small amount of the stuff on the deck gelcoat where the rails are, and also had a small spill on the non-slip deck. I managed to wash it off quickly, but the solvent did eat into the gelcoat a bit, and sort of melted it.
It's hardly noticable, but I know it's there. The gelcoat still seems intact, just warped a bit. I wonder if I still need to repair the gelcoat. Or can I leave it alone?
