I just picked up a Zenith 9S367 that's in great shape except for a cluster of small (2-3 mm) chips to the finish near the bottom of the cabinet. The chips are fairly shallow and the stain looks to be intact. I don't want to refinish the entire cabinet because it doesn't really need it. What's a good way of permanently repairing the finish in this area? I've refinished a few cabinets before so I have some moderate level of experience. However, I'm always interested in simple and easy!

Thanks!

Dave

Burn-in stick. It involves melting colored sticks of filler with a tool that resembles a soldering iron and thne smoothing the surface. It's not too difficult to do and there are several YouTube videos showing the process. The finished repairs can be nearly invisible.
