Gelcoat Questions

I've been searching TT and I am not sure if I have overlooked it, or just can't find it, but I have a few questions on Gelcoat hopefully you guys can answer relatively quickly.

I have an 83 s&s white hull w/ blue flake that I have decided to started refurbishing the gel coat. All old vinyls have been taken off and I have started wet sanding. I am sure I will have some questions on buffing/polishing later on, but I am more concerned with gel coat repair at this point. If I am doing this much work, may as well get it showroom condition.

I have a couple spots in the white Gelcoat I need to repair, but not finding any information on what people have used, color matching, etc....only a few small spots I need to clean up and a half dollar spot the PO managed to do at the waterline.

Sorry for creating a new thread, just can't seem to find the info I am looking for

And progress pictures since threads are pointless without them!

Just a couple minutes of work and i got these results. Pretty stoked and motivated me to do the entire boat.
