Hi all. I have a small but noticeable paint chip on a carbon fiber frame, and the chip goes all the way to the dark CF. No damage I'm told, just cosmetic. I have paint that I guess is a close enough match, but here is my question:
I built up the layers of paint slowly, but now that area has a slight bump, and in the light appears dull compared to the rest of the bike. Is there a sand paper with fine enough grit to level out the surface without getting into the unaffected areas? Should I wet sand? And finally, is the touch-up paint (metallic) dull because I didn't use clearcoat? Any advice is welcome. If it matters, the factory paintjob was from Cervelo. Thanks for any help!
