    Anyone tried it to repair curb rash? Today (and I'm still beating myself up over it), I ever so slightly rubbed against the steal part of a sewer vent that stuck out of a curb and applied some minor rash to one of my Grey 21 RIMs. As my wife often says, it's the 'only you will see it honey' type. ;-) At any rate, it's about 2.5 inches long and on the very edge of the RIM. Likely less than a quarter of an inch wide. I'm debating having them done by a professional place (if anyone knows a good one in Montreal, Canada) or simply use the touch up pen and perhaps have the RIM redone when it's more beaten up. Experience with the pen anyone? Thanks.

    I bought it and it works, especially if your curb rash is darker, it lightens it up. Don't expect it to fill deeper gashes. The color matches once fully dry... It looks twice as good as before, but not perfect on mine.

    Thanks. Did you sand before applying? If so, what sand paper grit?
