Unless they change materials on the new bodies I don't think the gel coat is UV resistant and would begin to degrade after long term exposure.
My MK3 body sat outside for a little over two years and it had started to turn chalky on the trunk and hood before I sent it out for paint.My MKII is still in grey gelcoat and hasn't degraded at all...still looks as crappy as the day it was new
The FFR MK4 announcement says the new MK4 bodies will be in red gel coat.I thought I read that the "red" bodies seen in the "back lot" weren't the new MK IV bodies?
I saw some blue bodies But those were coupe bodies. There is also a number in the body in the top of the trunk opening. That is the real marker for what mold the body is from.No, FFR does not do gel coat paint as a finished product with clear, each time there is a change in the mold they change the color of the gel coat to identify the body in relation to the mold it came from. They have had white, black, gray and maybe another one in there somewhere over the years.
The body is better and Dave Smith mentioned the Spec Racers could run the body as is. Gel coat with seams won't look as good as a painted car. I plan to drive mine in Gel coat to sort out the mechanical stuff. I will paint it later.Does the announcement of the red gel coat mean you don't have paint the car as long as you like the impregnated red color?
