Restoring Old Believers

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I have some old believers that I will be sanding down. However there are some deep nicks, scratches, and even a seem down the center.

I want to fill this in with a easy to use compound. I don't have much experience with plastic baits, so please mind my ignorance ;).

Any suggestions as what I could use to fill these in. Anything simple, that I can later sand, paint over and with less wait time would be great.

Thanks:)!!!

How about glazing putty. It is an automotive body shop repair product. Very simple and easy to use. Not expensive either. Comes in many sized containers. Sandable and shapes nicely. It fills in shallow holes or indentations of 1/8". I use it alot to smooth both plastic and wood baits before sealing and painting. Have never had a problem with it when applied correctly.....;)

Thunder is right on......you could also use plaster or wood filler. After you fill in the spots sand smooth, primer with white from a rattle can and repaint and clear.
