Hi Farlo, thanks for your input. I'll try to get my hands on some mastic asap.

I was thinking that in order to try to keep the repair job as minimalistic as possible I could border the scratches with electric tape to avoid covering areas which haven't been damage.

The last repair job I did was on a Bic, which I didn't care for as much as for my Futura. I used epoxy and then sanded it down. Only problem was the area around the patch of epoxy was obviously sanded and no longer the original colour. Wouldn't this happen on the Futura if I attempted to sand down the mastic?

Maybe by bordering the scratches as I've mentioned with electric tape and then other materials I could avoid also sanding the paint off undamaged areas....
