got a minor little rub/scuff in the metal flake over the weekend. nobodys fault really just a matter of bad luck and bad timing. can hardly see it at all but of course i know its there and i cant shake it. anybody have any experience with gelcoat repair for flake?

Is the damage to the clear surface or deeper into the flakes?

im going to say just the clear surface. it still shines and looks like metal flake but when not in the light it appears darker then the rest.

post a picture of the damage via photobucket so we can get a better idea of the unfortunate damage.

If the damage is just in the clear it can be wet sanded out. If you are into the flake then that is another story all together.

wont be near the boat for about a week. so i wont be able to snap a pic anytime soon. hoping someone with some good gelcoat experience can tune in and give there 2 cents.
