    A bit of paint about the size of a 5p has come off one of my door blades.
    What would be the best way to repair? Is it just a case of touching up with a paint pen or should I use something else?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Get a color match spray made up make sure you sand back any other loose paint and wet and dry flat or you will see it when painted, prime the area let it dry then a few light coats of paint leave it a few days then flat it all back then polish back up with a small amount of tcut to get it back shiny and get rid of any overspray then a coat of clear lacquer let it dry then flat and polish again done. Well that how I'd do it anyway

    Thanks for the reply. Sounds reasonably simple

    you could get all 4 done in a plasticised coating so they look like s4 ones, Ive just har all 4 of mine done at a bodyshop for £20 a piece and the look spot on
