    Hi all, I made a small scratch and pin prick hole of about 1mm deep on the top of my white Grp roof section. Not having dealt with GRP before I am wondering what is the best way to put a patch on this ?

    TIA :thumb:

    If it's as minimal as you suggest a little bit of white paint run in the scratch/hole will be more than enough, not worth messing about with gel coat.
