So I finished repairing my old plexiglass hatch with fiberglass... I want to finish the project by applying gelcoat. I don't have a spray gun so I was hoping to use brush or roller to apply the gelcoat on the bare fiberglass repair area.
My research tells me the best way for gelcoat application is the spray gun. Did anyone worked with gelocoat with a brush or a roller?
What are the tips and hints you can tell me about it?
And instead of dealing with gelcoat on a hatch repair, should I just use a spray paint that is designed for plastic materials?
I want to have a somewhat professional look on this project and get accustomed to gelcoat application since I'll be dealing with a couple of hull scrathes this season before we dip her into the water...
