Hello everyone.

I have recently acquired a 1962 Eagle Hockey Night in Canada in pretty good shape. There is some scratching on the ice surface that goes right through the paint. I don't want to touch these spots up as I can never get the paint colors to match and it ends up looking horrible.
My thought is to sand the spots bit and then clear coat. Does anyone have luck with one specific clear? I just want the surface to be smooth and playable but clean it up a bit.
Keepin' it Wheel!

You should have just emailed me and I can give you the process I used to repair and paint and finish a surface.
Has the painted surface "Yellowed"?
If so, here is what I did.
First sand the spot you want to repaint.
Use a 400 to 600 grit sand paper and do it by hand.
Once the surface is prepared for painting, use "Testors" model paint.
Depending on how yellow the surface has become will depend on the mixing of paint.
Each game "yellows " differently.
You will need 3 colours, Gloss White, Gloss Brown, Gloss Yellow. A palette for mixing and testing.
Try to test on a similar board as your game and remember the wet paint is always lighter then the dry version so it is important to let your test board dry to get a true sample of what you want to achieve.
My game mix was one Testor bottle of white mixed with 3 toothpick drops of yellow, and 1 toothpick drop of brown.
That combination was what my game required.
Once I got the right mix I use a small paint brush and brush the the paint on the required area. Then I apply a gentle air to the painted area so as to smooth out the paint and let dry.
Once the paint has dried to 80%. I use a fine sandpaper (800+) grit and gently sand. Use a slightly damp cloth and wipe the dust off. Wait a few minutes and apply a second layer of paint. Do the whole process until you get the desired look.
You won't need to clear kote the surface.

I hope this helps.
