Re-gelcoating - info needed.

Saw an Amel, looked out-of-the-mold-new, not... 15 years old. Was told it was re-gelcoated in Cartagena, Columbia. How is this done? How long does it last? Better than Awlgrip? What do you know about this procedure? Thanks!

See this thread:

Gelcoating over Paint

It's labor intensive and not a very easy DIY job. You need to know what you are doing because if you don't you could make a big mess in which case you would need to sand it all off and start over.
