What treatment to fix gouge on undercarriage ?
A few weeks ago drove over a yard long metal bar (I guess fell off a truck) at 140 kph on Autostrada in Italy and it left a 8 inch long gouge on the underside of my RX4 (around 1/4 to 3/8th inch deep groove/crease but didn't puncture the metal on the floor pan under the rear LHS passenger floor.
Just missed the brake lines and electrics and made a hell of a noise.
I now have bare metal exposed so the question is what do I do to fix this ? The maintenance software thing that starts with "D and ends with S" says IXELL "MAG PRO" monocomposite mastic but what is that in the real world?
Also wouldn't I have to spray the metal first with some type of primer ?
