Angry Repairing Scratches on Tinted Tails

ok, so first of all F*CK ME. I was fixing the connections on my tinted tails and was popping them back in when i decided to be a lazy MF and not put the 2 pins in. Went to test/signal em and the tail fell a good 2ft to the ground. Some of the paint chipped off and i need ideas on how to fix this. It is not blocking the LED lights so im thinking after i use a PC on it, ill use some sort of sharpie/paint pen to fill it in? good idea or wtf am i thinking?

the good news: i got em to work properly now

Re: Repairing Scratches on Tinted Tails

ok it looks rough at first but i did manage to buff most of it out. Even from a step back you can really tell unless you're right infront of it.

Man.. that was a close call.. .glad it didn't break the light!

It has at least 3 coats of clear on there... Glad it buffed out.

If your ever gone for a few days and if you want to send the light back in I'll sand it down and put more clear on there and send it back.. .Just pay the shipping.

Be glad to help... eveyone has accidents!
Take care,
Scott~
