Go easy on me as it's the first time I've done this.

I have a nice CSI that has a few marks on the front and sides and a lockbar hole in the front.

I have started work on the front using Sharpies and acrylic pens.

More work to do but here's my progress so far.

Before attached.

In progress and after. I will install a carriage bolt to finish it off. Waiting on the postman for that.

If it's got big gouges like that then there's no harm in having a go, looks a lot better 👍.

I did some very light touch-ups with a Sharpie on my Spiderman cab as I had nothing to lose by doing it.

Looks good! Touched up the front of my CSI last week too, found the darkish colours quite forgiving. Went with some acrylic paints and a teeny tiny brush.

Posca paint pens are also really great for minor touch ups. They'll blend in better than sharpies generally - Sharpies tend to have an odd purplish tinge at certain angles.
