View Full Version : Fixing little pits in clear: The Insect Has Landed

I have little pits in my clear where a couple of bugs made their very last landing. I've got most of the bugs out but they've left these little pits in my clear that I'm reluctant to sand all the way out. I've got two coats on and I don't want to cut through to the base. I would rather leave the pits there than risk cutting through. Is there a way to fill these pits? I read a post here about fixing chips in your paint using a toothpick and was wondering if that could be done here. The pits don't go all the way to the base as far as I can tell. I was thinking I could just drop a small amount of clear in each little pit and fill them up. Is this possible, or even advisable?

i had a hood once that cameout perfect except for some 2little fisheyes while it was still stickie i used a tiny brush and dabbed clearin them then let it dry for a day an blocked it out and buffed it like new,i would sand the area with 1500 then dab some clear on it then let it dry and block it and you should be ok:) ...

Well, I wouldn't have these pits if the insect hadn't been bailed out by Obama's stimulus package and got all overconfident, flying around my yard on someone else's money, money he didn't earn. Serves him right to land in a pool of isocyanates. That's what happens to socialist mosquitoes. Oh, I guess I should have posted this under Just Talk. Well, you started it, Style.

Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try.

That's what I would do, mix clear and hardener without any reducer and fill the divots. After it hardens you can level them by block sanding then polish. It's good to keep a pack of dabbers on hand for this type of work, they are like plastic tooth picks with a fuzzy end to hold the paint.
