Hey guys! I just installed on a new ARB Bull Bar the other night and unfortunately, it came a bit damaged (see attached photo). I'm not at all familiar with finish work, but I'm assuming this thing came powder coated. How would you recommend I prep/seal/touch-up this spot? I'm fine with a solution that needs attention every 1-2 years, but not looking for something that fails completely in < 1 year. I also don't need perfection either though. I'm going to be wheeling this thing so it will end up with scars, which is why I didn't bother returning this bumper. That being said, I still want to keep rust at bay.

Lastly, has anyone found a rattle can (or even a paint code I can request a touch-up bottle of) that does a decent job of matching the ARB black? UPDATE: I found an ARB Touch-Up Pen (ARB-33270). Sweet!

Thank you!

David

Sand it smooth, touch up with a few coats of black rattle can. Rubbing compound, polish, wax. Good to go. Did mine last year and it looks great.
