Grey usually fades to white, not vice-versa. I'm wondering, did you use a release agent or covering to ensure a full cure? Or perhaps, the new gelcoat has simply trapped dirt and become "greyer" that way? Would a light hit with 600-800 grit wet sandpaper reveal it still white beneath the grey?

could be dirt, but if i wet sand it with that 600-800 grit sand paper woudl it remove the gel coat as well? Also does gelkote usually attract dirt?
