It finally happened and I think I did it? Noticed a white line on my rear fender and was hoping it was one of my grey hairs? It wasn't, it was a scratch about seven inches long down to the white primer, my SSR is Asphault Black. Think I must have jinksed myself by buying a bottle of GM touchup paint before I needed it? I have to admit I did a good job of repairing it and think I will be the only one who knows where it is? I masked the scratch on both sides leaving only a 1/16 on each side of the scratch then brushed on the touchup paint and let dry for a couple of hours. Then removed the tape and used 600 wet sand paper and lots of water to sand new paint down. Then used a mild rubbing compound and lots and lots of wax. Came out real nice and those that know me know I keep my SSR spotless and shinny. If there is a finer sandpaper than 600 I would use it and save a lot of rubbing out. Thought of taking a before and after picture, but it would show on the site and I wanted the scratch gone ASAP.
