    As you can see my Juliet Ducati has very small scratches on the bottom of the frame - does anyone know of a place in Europe that can fix this ? Other ideas welcome as well ;) Mending Scratched X-metals... - image.jpg

    I haven't seen anyone pull off minor touchups to a carbon frame. Only full refinishes.

    All the refinishers I know are US-based. But I know at least the x-man has done international jobs.

    I have a theory on what the carbon finish actually is made of. My thoughts are that it is an extreamly dark oxidation that it then smoothed out via very light polishing, Then a high durability thin clear coat applied over top. I am debating trying this out on my XS beaters that need refinished... I just need to figure out how to achieve the darker oxidation.

    Check out my thread on what the finishes I achieved last night with another forum member.

    Use a Sharpie for touch-up?

    Whats a Sharpie ? A smaller version of the 'pens' used to touch up scratches on car paint ?

    Well anyways i solved the problem - sold the Juliet Ducati to an American with too much cash :lolsign:

    Dominant brand of black permanent marker in the US. The suggestion was probably meant as a joke but really, you can use it for a bunch of similar touchups... you'd be surprised what I've Sharpied over the years...
