I would prep it and spray with decent 2k product


Personally I would only use acrythane but that's my preference but sticks like shi@ to a blanket


Proper route is gel and styrene mix but it's a skill full process to get right and expensive


Prep epoxy primer and acrythane dogs dangles trust me

How big is the area you need to do? I've done patches up to about 4 sq in as a novice with gel and it was straightforward.

I 180 grit with air sander applied gel in badly gouged areas, brush it on then put Sellotape over it. Till cured sand to shape again,

Mask off where req heavy coat of epoxy 2k primer 180 sand more primer 320 grit. 800 grit wet n dry with plenty soap in water flat for hrs
I first coat with thick mix orange peel effect, further sand 800 then nail it 5ltr acrythane or polyester top coat

Leave week then mop it to achieve a mint finish


Easy huh?

paint is applied at a thick viscosity (hardly any solvent added as thinning agent)
causing a lumpy textured finish if that makes any sence, helps fill any imperfections
