Ideas on repairing a jrx2 chassis plate

Post by Toyotachris1982 »

Hello All! I have a jrx2 plate chassis and it has some small nicks on the edges and ideas on a product or method to repair them for a shelfie. Also maybe a topcoat that can have the same sheen as the original?

I was taking a look at the thread and a 2k epoxy primer was used. Typically a can of 2k needs to be used all at once. I found eastwood has a product they call Duraspray that can be shelved and reused. I used the clear coat from this line and it turned out good. It may be worth checking out the primer for your project.

CA/Super glue is what I use to repair edges and chips. I just repaired the tail on this JRX2 chassis. I went over the area with a black Sharpie, built up a few layers of glue then just lightly sanded to smooth and knock the shine off of the glue. I didn’t go too crazy making it perfect because I plan to run this one, but it looks a lot better.
