Scratched Hypalon- Help plz

So i just got my RiBCRAFT 585 about 1 month ago and already have 40 hours on it, thats not the question lol

I was boarding the RIb from another SIB and i had scissors in my hand, i slipped and happened to make a 3-4 inch scratch on the hypalon. The tube still holds air and when i run my finger over the scratch you can barely feel it but i am still worried, knowing not alot about RIBs. Should i just let it be?

Thank you very much'

What a pi**er

That was some slip.

Eye thawt that if it was a little one you could make a cosmetic patch or decal and cover it but if it's that big I guess you'll have to live with it.

The scratch will fade in time. but you could try giving the toobs a polish with 3M or 303 or whatever wunderprodukt is presently being heralded
