Re: Paint Codes
You will struggle to apply filler into these small areas (most likely you'll end up with air bubbles trapped under a thin coating of filler).
If you are using an aerosol paint, spray some into the lid, then apply droplets using an opened-up paper clip. Build up the layers until its level.
Leave for a few hours and use the same method for the clear lacquer, after a week of warm dry weather, give the area a light polish up (no T-cut or anything abrasive) and it'll look just fine to the casual onlooker.
If its a touch-up paint, you will need to dilute the paint with a touch of thinners.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
