    I purchased some OER replacement interior panels, along with Sem interior paint system (Soap, plastic prep, Adhesion promoter, Color coat & satin clear), I followed the instruction to the T and hung my panels.


    I'm finishing up my last panel and putting the final coat of clear on, as I walk away my panel falls on the painted surface:mad::whine:

    looks a lot worse in person, how can I fix this? I'm very upset

    If it were mine, I'd apply some adhesion promoter and repaint w/ the color. Blend the new color into an area about 8" bigger than the original scratched area. I've done this before w/ success.
    Good Luck

    No to hijack your thread, but is that a camel tan interior? Would you happen to have the SEM number for that colour?

    Scuff, reapply paint and blend. That's what I did when I dropped a freshly painted panel. It really sucks when that happens.
