1. Rex-Lith is the hardest fill material available. It is best used for major damage including broken corners, edges and LARGE gouges. It comes in three different colors: white, wood and clear. You can also mix in the Color Touch-up to achieve the proper base color match. First, prepare the damage using a small chisel.
2. Place one line of Rex-lith onto a palete.

3. Add a maximum of 5 drops of Color Touch-up or 3 drops of Touch-up Dye to every 1/2 inch of Rex-lith.
4. Mix the color into the Rex-Lith. Make sure to achieve the right color before adding the hardener. Rapidly fold (Do not stir) in the hardener crosswise on a smooth, non-absorbing surface.

5. When the desired color is reached, add the same length of hardener to the Rex-Lith and fold together.
6. Firmly press small portions of the filling compound into the damage area, using the blending spatula, until it is completely filled.

7. Lay the Plastic Film over the top of the filled area.
8. Flatten with the Special Applicator.

9. When the compound begins to harden (rubbery) carefully remove the Plastic Film and cut away excess material using a broad chisel.
10. Use the Metal Planer to finish the leveling process and then clean the surface with Liquid Sandpaper.

11. Remove debris using a Cotton Cloth, a felt block and Liquid Sandpaper.
12. You may fill any voids using a Soft Wax stick. Remove excess wax with the Special Applicator.

13. Use Color Touch-up to add or restore grain lines.
14. Finish the repair by adding an appropriate Shade Equalizer to match the surrounding area.

The repair is now complete.
