Re: Why paint instead of gelcoat?
"3. Awlgrip rolls & tips nicely BUT its still Voodoo because your working outdoors "
There's no doubt that working indoors, in a huge and costly climate-controlled shed with EPA approved ventilation and recovery systems is going to ka-ching the price of any job, but there's a strong rumor going around that it also totally removes the voodoo element from paint jobs. As well as the stray bugs, bits of plant matter, all that fun stuff.
Isn't the gelcoat more difficult to apply, and less forgiving?
