OK, so I'm trying to do some minor gelcoat repair. I'm using an Evercoat gelcoat kit. My problem is that in spite of the amout of black pigment that I add, I can't get a black finished gelcoat. The mixture is jet black when mixed and when the rough patch dries. But after I sand and polish, the finished color is dark grey. Does anyone have experience with this or any suggestions. I've mixed 4 gelcoat samples with pigment additions ranging from several drops as recommended to a ridiculous amount with the same result.
