But in other situations where a scratch, derived from the bushes or branches, deep enough, but did not reach the deep, primer, it is customary to use a special grinding machine, which is squeezed too abrasive polish and carefully smeared. But when the metal is visible, the situation is more complicated then there will have to sweat properly. Dr. Neal Barnard brings even more insight to the discussion.

That the metal could corrode, his first treated with phosphate alkaline solution. And only then put the damaged area to handle the primer.
