    what has it done lol

    well theirs a massive circular spray of chipped paint where the egg shell dug in with a smaller circle inside, most of it is like white marks, couple bits of reddish primer.

    Oh myyyyyyyyyyyyyyy god!

    sorry when i looked at pic i didnt realise it was soooooooo bad (please forgive me lol) i saw the circular mark but didnt realise it was as bad as that.

    obviously my idea wont work then lol,

    i honestly dont have anyother suggestion apart from respraying the panel with it being down to primer :(

    Sorry to tell you mate but i see this quite often at work (Im a panel beater/sprayer and i also detail) It reqires a re-paint. Possibly just the panel thats damaged if its in the centre of the panel or possibly 2 if it's towards the edge of the panel to acheive correct colour blending. Hope this helps. sorry mate.

    Regards Aaron

    Ps it's the shell of the egg that causes the chips on impact. Best to remove the egg asap though as its a nightmare to remove once it dries on!

    Have you tried a light sand with some 2000-2500 grit wet sand paper, then buff with an polisher?

    well thats what i thought, well i was thinkin what if i got some lacquer remover, gently rubbed over the area to get down to the paint level, then got some sort of metallic t cut and just tried to blend it in that way, maybe then a rubbing compoud ,then polish it with a car polisher. either way it cant look any worse lol and even if it did then i'd have to get in painted anyway, got to wait for it get hotter again now.
