Re: Megane III coupe key scratch

If you are tempted to cover this yourself, use some cellulose thinners to dilute the paint beforehand.

You want the consistency of water, and either an open-ended paperclip or the finest artist's brush to apply it.

It may take more than one coat, and repeat the process with clear lacquer (after thinning that too).

Allow 6-7 days to fully dry, then give it a good polish-up.

You'll still know where to look (owner's curse), but hopefully it won't be so noticeable to others, and corrosion is eliminated.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
