Sill gouge fix,kinda

After seeking some advice and response from Paul to my bit of sill damage,
Trafic leaky roof and sides 2001
Trafic leaky roof and sides 2001

I found a small tin of white hammerite that was still in good condition,
I decided against it tho as I wanted to get the job done fast .
I used some loctite stuff Ive used for many years.It has the same smell as "rust eater " a pink jelly that was around a long time ago,
The rust eater I found to be bad , it kinda converted the rust but provided no seal and was a bad key even for primer.
The loctite stuff seals well and is a good primer.

There was a slight scrape thru to metal Much smaller than the hole thru the sealant coating in the pics.
Looks like someone shot a bullet into it!(and I never heard any damage or scrape

1st pic is the stuff I used.
2nd pic is with 2 coats of loctite,cured with a hairdryer.
3rd pic is renault touch up paint, also cured off
4th pic is renault lacquer on top.

Not exactly invisible mending! but since its low as long as it doesnt rust who cares :0
