    Re: small scratch on my magico s3mk2

    Seems like everyone has come running with opinions yet we don’t even know what we’re looking at.

    Magico speakers are either finished in a gloss paint finish or a rough/textured powdercoat finish. Either way there is no easy repair that will return it to 100%.

    Take a photo and lets see.

    Put a sticker over it! Out of sight, out of mind. That's what I used to do on my sport bikes when they got nicks and stone chips.

    Or, as others have menioned, just leave it alone. Its water under the bridge now. Go with the Japanese wabi-sabi philosophy.

    FWIW, serious watch collectors DO NOT want the watches they purchase to ever be polished or refinished in any way. They want 'em with the nicks and dings they've acquired over time. In fact, high-value vintage watches are worth MORE if they have never been polished or refinished.

    Were you able to contact Magico? What's the verdict? So, sorry again that this happened.

    The same goes for vintage guitars. Refinishing or overspraying reduces their value dramatically.

    If the finish is MCAST you need a small quantity of the powdercoat, which you dissolve it an organic solvent (I forget which one), and then you touch up the scratch with a small paint brush. That is the procedure as explained to me when my S3 was scratched when undergoing a driver replacement.
