    Thanks. Chips can be hit or miss. You have to de-gloss the chip or you’ll see it. This one came out pretty good. ROBBYBOBBY64.

    Bottle repairs.

    That’s cobalt medicine is NY Digger Steve’s bottle. I’ve done a couple repairs for him. It had a bit of damage. He wanted it to just look good from the front in a window. Cobalt wasn’t as hard to blend as I thought. ROBBYBOBBY64.

    Wm. T. Allen Paterson 3 backward N’s
