What Gel Color?

So I was reading up on gel coat repair etc.... my PO had some work done and whoever was in charge of color matching could not see in shades, the colors seem right but the tone is all wrong (if that makes sense). Anyhow, I saw where it was suggested to call MC and give them your HIN and ask what the gel scheme is so we can order them from spectrum. Has anyone done this, is this correct?

You don't need to call MC. You can find the Spectrum gel based the year of your boat. I tried it with the white and black on a 2004. It was much closer than I could have matched but not perfect. I suspect it was due to fading on my boat over the years. It's tricky business matching color as it seems the color changes a bit as it dries.

Search the iboats link below. I put in 1998 for your boat. There are a number of Spectrum reds listed for MasterCraft in 1998.

funny, I cant get that to pull up. I found this on the spectrum site after I put up the glacier white comment... but I am worried that this is actually the brownish stripe, not the over all hull color.

The glacier white is the standard bright white used on most MC's from 1986 - 2007. Looks like there is also a Pearl white listed. I'm not sure how that compares to Glacier White.

For the beige, if you click on the iboats link above, go to the left side of the screen and click on "Beige" under Color Family. Or just click on the new link below. Looks like it is only available in a gallon at $220. You might want to call them to ask about getting just a quart of it. A quart goes a long way.
