Scratch repair ?
I acquired a very nice used rod that has a scratch/scrape, perhaps 1" long, 3/8" wide. It doesn't appear to have done any structural damage, rather, it just... scraped a bit. Looks like someone brushed it up against something. It's a cosmetic issue.
Question: first, is it worthwhile even trying to "make it look better" or is it wiser just to leave it alone and consider it a war wound while moving on? I have some PermaGloss but don't want to make an otherwise nice looking rod a basketcase with a small patch job.
I can't be the first to ask this question. Ok, maybe I am "the rookie". Regardless, opinions and advice sincerely appreciated.
