[DML] Engine Compartment Fiberglass



List:

I have everything out of my engine compartment and both my rear quarter panels off and I can't help but notice how bad the fiberglass looks.  So I'm wondering what is the best option for refinishing it.  I think paint might be my only option as it looks like the factory only put a gel coat on the pontoons and not inside the engine compartment.  So a fiberglass restorer would not be able to do the whole area.  Does anyone have experience with painting bare fiberglass with no gel coat (engine bay) and fiberglass that does have a gel coat (pontoons)?  What kind of preparation is necessary?  Primers, sanding, types of paint, cleaning, etc.  I only plan to do this once so doing it right the first time is a must.

Thanks!
