HA! Let's say I tried to match it. I bought a gelcoat kit (I think by Evercoat) and did it all by eye. I followed the instructions, prepped the area, applied the gelcoat, and covered with plastic film provided in the kit. Then I wet sanded and finished the area.

The end result is that the surface is good and smooth, and the color is just OK. It's not noticeable because of the location--part of the reason I did the project myself to begin with.

I considered ordering from Minicraft, but the prices were outrageous since you have to order quarts or larger. I just needed an ounce or two. If I was doing a larger project, I might use them. For something small like I did, I'd probably try it again next time around and make sure I had natural light available to check color. Not bright sunlight, but not too shaded. Like a day with light cloud cover would be perfect.

Use VERY SMALL amounts of color. The changes are dramatic.

Hope that helps!
-J
