Zinc chromate, Etching paint...

Hi.. i got some small areas on the Mariner which are now bare aluminium and need touching up.... quicksilver does the phantom black touch up for the sum of 15 (11ml) and the undercoat in grey.... Any idea what the cheapest way is to touch this up? Use etching or zinc chromate? Its just that paying 30 to touch up a small area is ludicrous and can better be spend in my local pub :-)

Hi Nugent....So is the zinc chromate a 2 part primer? Ps... who's Addy ? :-)... also assume the black (phantom) paint is best to buy from quicksilver?
