    I went to see the progress on my console today and was told he used white (tinted to match)gel coat with clear in it. Is there such a thing? he said it shines like clear coat. Isnt all of it clear at some point until color is added?

    Yeas and no as the color of gel is usually white and then tinted to the desired color.

    I watched a guy do it at his shop and I asked a very similar question and was told that he adds the clear because it makes the shine look deeper and it hides scratches much better.

    Thats all I know.
