Stellar colour match

8 months 3 weeks ago - 8 months 3 weeks ago #30698 by Dicko
Does anyone know what colour the yellow on a stellar ultra is? I need to patch a chip on the nose and was hoping someone had already matched the colour.
Conversely does Stellar sell touchup kits? (they sell everything else)

Stellar sells matching gelcoat and it is rather thick (almost paste-like) so it is easier to patch scratches, etc. The do not sell the catalyst MIBK with it so you need to buy it from a gelcoat/fiberglass repair company who will give you the mixing ratio. It works well.
There is a nice article on doing repairs in Wesley Echols Surfski Review Blog.

On my search for coloured epoxy- gelcoat I did not find any in Germany. They just take resin with additives for colour and thixotropy, e.g.

colour paste or

colour paste and chips and

thixotroping agent .

Have a blessed year 2018 with abundant fascinating trips and always save travel!

Hey Simon,
where did you get those cleats on the back side of the pedals? The ones that stop the rudder line from slipping. I have a mate that wants to set up a similar system.
