Re: Fiberglass body
You shouldn't "need" to paint over the gel coat. The finish looks really nice from the factory, but (you new there was a BUT didn't you) gel coats fade rapidly in the sun. If this is just a weekend trail rig the finish should last a long time. If it is a daily driver and it sits in the sun all day, expect the finish to fade in a couple of years! Also, with the gel coat you can have any color you want...as long as it's white (from 4WD Hardware anyways). Very nice bodies though.
