Genelec 8040B Scratch Repair

Hi there,


Thank you so much for your help in advance.


I take pride in looking after my music equipment but unfortunately someone has scratched my brand new Genelec 8040B speaker which I’m really disappointed about (image attached).


I have tried to search the forum for a solution but not found all the answers enough for me to feel confident to take a paintbrush to them.


Please will you advise the paint required to successfully disguise the scratches?


- Normal 1-component alkyd paint (for an aluminium enclosure?)

- Do I need a primer? 

- What’s the colour code? (I understand the enclosure is powder coated and multi tonal in it’s detail, though please advise a grey which will match)


Many thanks,
