1996 arima gelcoat
« on: January 06, 2019, 12:34:02 PM »
Belinda, does arima carry any gelcoat (smaller then the quarts available from spectrum) for a 96 arima?

Anybody out there have leftover from their own project that we could buy some from.

Also, what is the actual color of the normal arima gelcoat for a 96?  Is it dune beige or arima off white?

   If your talking about the top liner, it may be the so-called "colonial white" like my 94.   I had Arima paint my entire boat that color.  Beautiful!

Dear Arima:  Please "square-off" the Hunter transom.  Make it like my old 77 Silverline.  Thank you.  Oh yeah...please hurry; I'm getting old.

It is the hull sides that we are looking at repairing.  When I search spectrum I get 5 colors.  Burgandy and blue are 2 of them which is obviously out but then their is arima off white, dune beige and  Astoria gray.  Guessing we wouldn't have the Astoria gray as it says 81-04.  Is Astoria gray the liner color on some?

Dune beige is even odd as spectrum has 2 different ones.  There is an 81-95 option and a 96-99.  My guess is we have the off white but not sure.

Here is a Pic if it helps.

Your hull and liner are dune beige.  The deck, including gunwales and baitwell lids, are Arima off white.  I am not sure why they have two different dune beige colors but I suggest getting the patch paste kit.  If you let me know your email, I will send you simple gelcoat patching instructions.

Thanks Belinda.  You are the best!

I will dm you my email.  Is the patch kit something we can get from the factory or defiance?  My father lives on Bainbridge so not to bad of a drive to get there. 

Another member also messaged me that he has a gallon for a 97.  I am waiting confirm from him the color.
