    Thumbs down Pre paint work advice

    Hi,

    Having not really used my car for the last few weeks, I've just noticed a reasonbly nasty dent and chip on the side of my car on the crease just in front of the fuel filler cap.
    Broken beer bottle glass nearby suggests some thoughtless twerp has thrown it and it's landed on the side of my car. Great!

    So, it could have happened some time ago, and the paint is exposed. Any suggestions on what to put over the exposed metal whilst it waits to go in for repair?

    Advice apprecaited

    JK

    Give it a clean out first and then apply the wax or sealant that you have Jamie. To be honest, as long as it's not the metal, you won't be seeing any rust.

    Aye, as above, just wax/seal it - will be sufficient until the bodyshop can see to it. Bad news though, bloody idiots.

    I know - very annoying, especially as this is the first car i've actually really looked after, from a detailing perspective!
    Cheer for the advice guys - all sealed waiting for a date it can go in for repair!
