personally, I would chop out the number plate recess and cut it into flat sections, then fill the gap left with the peices of ABS you cut out and use a soldering iron to plastic weld them together.
Sand like frig,
fill,
sand
prime,

ect...

Re: From Rat to That... Seicento

Roller? Never thought of that, does it give you a slight ripple effect like gloss painting with a foam roller?

it did, i thinned it down a tad more though, To a consistancy like skimmed milk lol I squeezed most of the excess paint out and then rollered it, bubbles should like self level and dissapear, I did also sand bewteen the coats etc and use a cutting compound, Unfortunately the car is now for sale, hopefully if someone buys it they can rebuild her and keep her on the road. I dont have time to fix her as I have just bought myself a 3 series BMW. Gonna miss her :)

oh soo true lol i did toy with the idea of pouring all the money into turboing etc, but needed a daily driver as wont be doing the work myself lol so would be a work in progress. im still gutted, had it booked in for clutch etc and full respray and had started working on smoothing the bumper.
