    How bad is pitting on the ride plate, need repairing?

    Hi,

    The ride plate for my Waveruuner project has some surface pitting, it perhaps looks a bit worse than it is in this pic as most if it will (hopefully) come off with a good wire brush, but there are a number of small pits and some up to a few mm wide.

    How bad will this affect performace?

    I am thinking maybe drag some car body filler or epoxy over the plate with a stright edge to fill the holes (after cleaning) then sand flat, will body filler hold as that would be easier, or would epoxy be needed?

    Does single pack automative work on these if you use an etch primer, or does it need to be two pack?

    Thanks,

    Anthony
    PS yes I know it would be easier to replace but trying to keep it on budget.

    That's beyond repair get a new one because the way that is it will scrub speed.
