How to get paint of metal and fill in gaps

Postby celtic323 » 01 Feb 2018, 12:40

I don't know if anyone can help but I have a solider 95 working belt (see link below) that has chipped paint and small chunks taken out of the metal, can anyone tell me how to remove the paint and fill in the chunks so it can be re painted in a similar colour.

Many thanks

I'd like to help but I haven't got the foggiest idea of what to suggest.

I also apologise as when you see that you've had a reply, you'll probably think it's from someone who can help. :oops:

Image doesnt seem to load for me. Use a wire brush to remove any loose paint and just spray it.No real need to remove the paint first.

Acetone will generally remove paint though, you can use nail varnish remover if need be, as long as it contains acetone.

tried nail varnish but that didn't work, tried good old fashioned sand paper but that scratches the metal.
