Quick question:

 

Where is the best place to buy some specific gel coat colour?  I have the RAL number and it doesn’t look like the main marine shops (purple/P&B) go into loads of colours

I'd always try and get it from whoever made the original, best chance of a good match.

LDC have been very helpful in the past with their RS range of colours. Check that the number doesn't match one of theirs?

Phantom RAL 7036 Platinum Grey

Seen on the LDC web site that some of the 400's gel coat is platinum so going to give them a call, hoping it's the same
