Immediate patch for very deep scratch (to metal)

Postby MrDodo » Sat Sep 06, 2014 4:18 pm

Someone has very kindly left their mark on Dodo's front wing :evil:

It's done through the primer to the metal - should I just fill in with some touch up I have until I get some professional care next in about 10 day's time?[frame]Image[/frame]

Yes just get it covered up with a compatible paint.Not primer it absorbs moisture.Dab it in with a small paintbrush.If you only have paint in an aerosol spray some in the lid then brush it on.

Was this a deliberate act? Looks like it, bas*^"ds

Cover it with grease out of your grease gun, this will keep oxygen out

I wouldn't use grease. As above use a clean brush and cover all the bare metal with paint (celly) until you can get it professionally repaired.

I don't think it was malicious - but no one bothered to leave a note and it's not something you wouldn't have notice doing. Thanks all for the advice, I went to patch it with touch-up but found my pot had dried out and I don't have any thinners!

Just go to a motor shop and buy one of those small touch up plastic thingies witha brush in.As long as the colours similar.Will stop the rust till it gets done properly.
