ER Paint

I am getting ready to have both engines out next week as well as both gas tanks. Several thoughts here,
when the engines are out I am going to replace,
-spark plugs
-check/replace cap and rooter
-all exhaust hoses replaced
-all fuel lines replaced
-all new belts
*I just did zincs

I'd also like to repaint under the engines and the isle in the ER. Does anyone know if this is paint or gel coat? I have a Tollycraft and it's gray.

Any other ideas as to what I should do when the engines are out?

I don't know but you can tell by sanding a small area. Smell the dust. You'll know immediately if it's polyester/gel coat from the odor.
