I scraped the right bottom fender fiberglass (black area) trying to ease down a steep drive. I thought i had it but it hit some rocks at the corner. Luckily its on the underneath side but still bugs the crap out me! Question for some body work guys - can i hit this with some light or wet sandpaper, smooth it out and spray it with some of the black metalic flash paint?

Doesn't have to perfect but i'd like to clean it up best as possible.

TIA.

Don’t buy GM carbon flash paint in 5 oz rattle cans. Read the reviews. Very little flake and more flat than gloss. I can confirm that first hand.

Thanks for the headsup. Do you have an alternate recommendation?

I've had pretty good luck with this company:


To get a real gloss, you'll need clear as well as the Carbon Flash.

FWIW the color doesn't show up under "Corvette" so i searched for the paint code WA501Q (carbon flash metallic) and it shows up under other GM models. Guessing its the same due to the actual paint code match.
