    x2 on the paint. I'd color match it to the truck myself.

    Yup!!! Did mine close to 4 years ago now. Cost all of $120 and was a heck of a fun project.

    When I priced it out to to some local shops I got back anywhere from $600-$800.

    Coming from an industry that sees a lotof Gelcoat damage and having repaired a ton, id agree that sanding and painting would be way easier than trying to fix that Gelcoat. Especially since it doesnt match the truck anyway and finding gelcoat to match the existing shell is also going to be hard.
