hiya guys.. got the standard hardtop sickness of extremely oxidized gelcoat/paint. how would you guys go about repairing this. if it's gelcoat, would you get fiberglass stuff and recoat it? i'm considering that next time i take it off, hit it with a bit of sandpaper and give it the krylon touch. matte black of course. it probably wont last long.. but touchups should be easy. any hints for a lasting finish? the first guy that suggests using a electric buffer and polishing compound/fiberglass cleaner gets run over with my jeep.
Awwwwwwwwwwww... So he wants to go OFF-ROAD does he????

I took my hard top to a local body shop and they painted it for about 75 bucks. It looks better than a factory paint job. If it scratches up you can buy touch up paint.

I wet sanded mine and painted it with some Rustoleum (not because I thought it would rust, but because somebody on this board recommended it for durability) and a small roller. After the primer and the first two coats looked alittle rough, but after the third it looks good enough for me and very durable.
You should be able to find my old post on it somewhere if you're interested.
