Hey Guys! I scored a sweet deal on a 2005 DC127 a few weeks ago. It's pretty flawless except one major chunk of wood was chipped off and glued back on.
I've never cared too much about finish flaws but this one is pretty bad (worse than the pics show) so I was going to take a stab a drop filling. Anyone have experience color matching Carvin Pearl Blue? I was thinking about finding a close enough nail polish. Wouldn't have to be perfect, just better than it's current condition.

Before messing with the chip, I would also see if you can make the borders of the chunk less noticeable. Is that glue overflow, or just broken polyester finish? What you can do is get super thin super glue and then use that a bit. It should flow right into the tiny cracks.

Cut a strip of sand paper about 1/4" wide and 6-8" long. Then push the sand paper on the extra glue with one finger. Pull the sand paper with the other hand. This will ensure that you don't sand down the entire area. Just the glue parts.
