    Touch up Pen

    Hey Guys,
    Im looking to fix up all those little scratches around my ski so i was think the touch up pen would be the best option? I have some scratches that are just down to the white colour of the deck. And some very light scratches from sand which im not sure are big enough to use the touch up pen on? So if anyone has used a touch up pen please post up your thoughts and your difficulties if any. Also will i need a primer?

    Thanks
    Chad

    I used a blue and silver touchup pen from www.colorrite.com and gotta say I was very impressed with the match. You need to get the clear to make it glossy, but the match was dead on. I suggest using an orbital buffer to smooth it down and maybe just a bit of wetsanding. I am a bit anal though and hate scratches. Small little scratches are the easiest with the tip on that (almost Sharpie like) and when you run the buffer over it all the excess will come off leaving just the scratch filled in. Highly suggest it!

    I personally like the small jar with nail polish style brush as it lets you put on a thicker coat, never tried the pen version to see how well the clear would flow (usually much thicker consistency then paint)
