repairing hardi-trim
 
Anyone ever repaired hardi trim? My wife finally hit the corner of the house. Fortunately, it was her car and minimal damage to the house. The hardi kind of wafered a little. I don't want to cut out a whole piece, its only the corner edge, but I'm afraid if i don't smooth it and seal it that water will get in and expand the fibers.

Any ideas/suggestions?

From their website.

PATCHING
Dents, chips and cracks can be filled with a cementitious patching compound.

You could use bondo. I have used it alot on renovation jobs. Never used it do body work on a car though. LOL

LOL. I have their site pretty much memorized, didn't think to check back for repair. Thanks.

Funny, framer mentioned Bondo. I could fix the house *and* the car at the same time :D

Finish Carps and Painters use it all the time. They will never tell but they all keep a can behind the seat. :D Next time your at a box store take a walk in the paint isle with the caulk you'll find bondo. :eek:
