    Run a belt linisher over the repairs, or a draw file, and then follow the Devoe instructions for painting.

    they make great epoxy paints, but you may have to buy from someones workshop as you will hardky need any to do a boom. Phone them to see who is buying their products and they may be able to onsell a 1/2 litre to you.
