Alright, I need a little bit of help.

While modding my SMH10 I slipped with my file and scratched the powder coating on the main divider plate just to the right of the reservoir sad-smiley-002.gif:



What are my options to correct this? Is it pretty much just getting it recoated? I would prefer not to have to do that due to the size of the scratch, anyone have any suggestions?

It's powder coated so you won't get the same effect through spray can means, you would probably have to just spray it with a very close matching spray paint.

I was thinking a weapons grade laser system that could detect, seek, and destroy smartassed commenters would be most appropriate . . . . . gunner.gif

Amazing, . . . . I know . . . .


I just barely let it slip out, and already the orders are pouring in and Kickstarter funding is soaring . . . .

If it were me, I'd just put a Sharpe to it.

Sharpie can work, but it's black has a blue-ish tint to it and it doesn't last on a non-porous surface especially if you rub / wipe / clean it. It will for a while, but it fades over time and never looks all that good to start with.

A better option imho would be a fine tip black oil paint marker. Elmers makes one that's pretty good. I first tried it after seeing Lutro0 recommended it, but a better brand I've found is 'Deco Color'. It takes longer to dry but it is definitely permanent and on the black cases and rads I've tried it on it's been a better match than anything else I've found.

Good morning everyone.

There's a lot of patients at the hospital today, so I'm not sure I'll be on at all. I just wanted to wish everyone a happy new year. Please have lots of fun, but be safe.

That sucks man frown.gif

My suggestion for future work is to cover the panel in painting tape (the green Frog tape is nice, but the blue and beige work too).
