I'm sorry, i'm confusing the hell out of you. The bottom is done, it's flipped over and now i'm going to paint the top and hood. They are still gelcoat, except where i have made some repairs. I have not applied anything or sanded except in the areas of repair. The bottom was originally yellow, i made a filler putty and filled the gouges in. Sprayed the black epoxy simply to change the color.
