Heck I got a set of scaffolding and a paint sprayer for Christmas 2016 to use on the previous bus ,but we didn't get that far yet. Our goat rails could use a serious touch up as well. Just gotta find the right shade of beige. I used the Rustolium Almond on the tag light but it's not the same color as the coach so I will get another color and go over it.

Wet sand a 6 inch square patch then hand apply the compound and see if that doesn't help
Yup, wet sand with 1000 grit, then rubbing compound, and a quality polish to finish it off..

LOL Scaffolding for Christmas . What you get your husband diamonds and pearls? Kidding I think that's wonderful . The problem with most spray paints out of a can is they don't have a hardener in them which means they don't hold up well. There are companies that can make up cans of paint that have a hardener which you introduce into the can right before you apply. Problem solved for a small touch up. If you have much to do you just have to learn to do use an automotive spray gun. And it's like painting anything else anyone can paint but there is a big range between the skilled and the rank amateurs

Heck anyone who gets scaffolding for Christmas can do this no problem

I think I might start with 2000 grit first and see where that gets me (probably wet-sand it as well). If its not enough, then move to 1000.
