I have a quart of off white factory gelcoat and I need to match it to the deck which is white and faded.

Any tips or tricks. I tried to take some white to it but it just doesn’t quite match. Maybe it will never match perfectly.

I have some holes and chips in the gelcoat that need to be ground out and filled. Couple on the deck and a few on gunwales. So need to try to match the white.

So let me get this straight, I could use Marine Tex to fill in the gouge/scratch, then color match the gel coat to blend it in nice? I am a novice when it comes to fiberglass. You would use the color tint kit from Spectrum to do this?
Anyone have a photo of a patch they did on their boat?
