touch up paint, a little prep work and a eye for detail and it can be almost impossible to see

how deep is the scratch. anything that goes deeper than the outshell you should leave alone. anything less could be fixed with touch up paint.

personally i would leave it be. touching it up could make it look worse. best way to fix small chip in helmet?

you might think about repainting the entire helmet. a small chip can be taken out easily, but matching your color might be hard.

it adds character. leave it and make up grandiose crash stories about it.

my shoei was cherry until i set it on the seat while i closed the garage door. it rolled all the way down the driveway out into the middle of the street. it has nicks and chips all the way around it. check out the avatar. you can’t see any of them from 50 yards away.

high gloss valspar latex acrylic house paint from lowes.

get a good color match. if it’s a large chip, sand with 600 grit sandpaper. use a very small, fine bristle brush. apply several thin coats.

i did this with my hardshell saddlebags. you can hardly notice the repair.
