Default Painting dash/forward dash area 2400SCR

The deck area behind the windows and dash area has faded quite a bit from its original tan color. Thoughts on top painting it tan again? Pic below shows an example of the areas in question.

sure you can paint it....just get a quality sprayer and compressor....crank it up to about 15psi...then dilute the gel coat with some thinner to let it flow thru the paintgun...mask off...and shoot it with the right colors.....not a problem....I've seen them do it a few times and if done correctly...it will turn out great!!..

Before going down the re-gelcoat road, have you tried using any products for heavy fiberglass oxidation? I would try some of the heavier products. 3M makes some nice stuff. A bottle of "3M™ Marine Color/Gloss Restorer" and a random orbital buffer will go a long, long way and will be significantly less time, effort, expense and mess. I would at least consider trying that before going down the re-gel route.

Just my .02

good post Steve.....I hadn't thought of that since the question was about paint.....but I'd try as suggested with the restorer and a buffer...
