Fixing scratches in Aluminium forks legs
Date Posted:31 May 2020
Here's a video from Guitar technician Dan at Stew Mac about fixing scratches and dings on guitar bodies, but the technique works perfectly well for aluminium forks legs as well. The ever popular 40mm Marzochhi upper legs are now like Unicorn Horns to find - IMPOSSIBLE! So we are forced to fix them on a regular basis.
Previously I used dilute black nail varnish, but the tinted Super Glues, and whip tips available now work really well, and adapting the Luthers technique shown in this video, you can end up with a very neat job if you take your time.
