I have an area on my transom that I have done some repair on. I planned on going to Spectrum Color to get the gel coat, but when I called today, there is a gallon minimum (@$250/gal) for both the colors (Blue and Lt Grey). Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with trying to custom mix gelcoat?

The area will be mostly hidden by the ski deck bracket, but I want it to be close.

Thanks.

I think there is another company that supplies kits. I saw a thread about it a few months ago. Maybe do a search on this site for gel cote repair kits. You may be able to get the exact color. I know from experience that trying to color match using a generic kit is a PIA! I even had a spectrum color match but it just had to be tinted slightly with the included tint kit. Yeah, I totally screwed that up.
