Can I still get factory mix gelcoat for my '89 Barefoot 190?

I'd like to get about a quart of factory mix gelcoat for my '89 B/F 190 (TriStar) to repair some very minor scratches. The color scheme is Platinum Grey, and I only need the grey gelcoat, not the black.
Does anyone know how I would go about finding someone who sells this? and how much$$?

Gelcoat has a shelf life of about a year, so keep that in mind when you order it.

Jim, just looking through the spectrum catalog, is the Red that goes through 1992 the same as for 1993. Don't see the 1993-1994 red listed. Appears the same on the boats I've seen.

That's a question for Spectrum. If there's a difference, it'll be in their formula, which they should be able to access. The problem that I can see occurring is a "mismatch' due to the original gel fading more or less, depending on the color. Blue and red being the ones that fade the most. That's the reason I would always tell customers that the gel coat color wouldn't necessarily be a perfect match. Much easier on clean hulls and decks when it was grey, black, oyster or glacier white. I really like the emerald but I have seen some of those that really faded badly. Other than that, those boats were immaculate.

Thanks East TX Skier! It's amazing what you can get if you know where to go. I was all prepared to sweat thru trying to mix the color myself, knowing I wouldnever get it right.

Gotcha. I have a little spot I need to get resprayed, but it's white. From past experience with my father-in-law's boat, I'm tempted to let the guy we use just match it. The last time we went that route, we had unbelievable "invisible" results.
