    Tripod repair help

    I currently am using a Manfrotto tripod and on my last hiking trip I just put my pack on my four wheeler on the way out and scuffed off the finish/paint near the head. Was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for products to fix this. Everyone says it gives it character but it annoys me and I am giving this to my dad and I will not let him have a scuffed up piece of equipment. Thanks in advance!

    Really? When you use equipment as a hunting tool, in the feild, it will show signs of use. That's like buying a 4x4 and saying you'll never let it get scratched. It happens, I wouln't worry about it.....it still works rite?

    Yeah... I like to keep my stuff nice. Everything is going to get a certain amount of wear but why not help it if I can? Just my opinion.

    I can understand trying to keep stuff nice, ofcorse I try as well, hopefully someone will tell you where to get some touch-up paint. I'd try the hardware store, or maybe model paint?
