No surprise - after having all my small parts blasted there is some scarring/pitting in areas where rust had formed.
Any tricks to hide this (sanding won't work).
I'm thinking build primer - but don't know if the type out of of the can will work.

PS> parts are currently epoxy primed.

Thanks

I used POR-15 on a lot of my small parts, and they turned out like they were plastic coated....Just be sure not to get it in thread holes and on threads...

How about some spot putty, prime and paint. Thats what you would do if it was the body of the car.

I agree with Mike... Spot putty, then K66 primer, sand with 180, then 360 paper...Not hard, just a little time consuming...

I would recommend using Metal2Metal to fill the damage and then a skim coat of bondo over that as a finish surface. If the scars are deep, you can put multiple layers of the Metal2Metal on, sanding each time, to build it up.

I'm able to buy it at the local auto paint store, but Eastwood's also carries it. It's not cheap, but it is a great product.
