    Have a profesional do it.....Better safe than sory.Take them to a fiber glass shop and try and bring a sample if your going to have color added.

    why bother? anyway you'll block sand the whole car and slap some two pack high build primer on it or is it 100% all around? mine opinion only.

    Kit man I don't know what kind of experiance do you have in body prep.take your palm pass it over the body. do you feel any high/low surface? you may not , so then take black laquer spray paint and from about 15" above splash lightly over.now take sanding block with 180 paper and block send it. if you can't see any black spots then you have good panels. but if there are darker spots ,hey we got a sending to do .
    It took me good 100hrs to get it right on mine car.when I was finished there was no gel left. I sprayed Polyester Filler over an block again .now the car was painted in 99 and still looks good. no cracks or any other blemish.
    Ask Felix (Kitcarguy) he can tell you how long and what is it like.
