carbon cannondale sex13 frame repair?

....bought a cannondale frame with some damage to the top tube where the aluminum meets the carbon.... the damage is deep ... not shure how this was made... not an impact hit... more of just a deep scratchall around the top tube... like a 360 degree deep scratch

I've watched vedeos on youtubbe where folks are repairing carbon bikes... no solvent should be used as it can destroy the bond between the aluminum and carbon....

seems pretty straight forward .... fix it with epoxy... sand it smoth and repaint... re-decal...

...anybody do this repair? Thanks..

I'l try to post pics later...

A "scratch" a full 360 around a tube sounds like it could be some kind of manufacturing artifact like a parting line, unless someone damaged it with a hose clamp or similar. You have enough posts to attach pictures, that would help to clarify your issue.
