I am wanting to know what is the best paint and prep for the gel coat fuse on a KMP Beaver fuse. Also should it be clear coated for final coat :

I've always used Autoair by Createx, it's a highly pigmented airbrush or touch-up spray gun paint (waterbase) once you have prepared the gell coat you spray a bonding base coat that adhears to fiberglass very well. Once dry (which is usually done with a heat gun) you can paint whatever color you choose. Painting is done in extremely light coats and many of them. the finish will be flat. When your happy, apply Dupont or PPG type automotive gloss clear coat...the finish and color is amazing, durable and fuel resistant.
