Chips on the bottom of my medium BGE

After 20 years, I replaced by medium BGE's nest. The old one was rusting at the joints and the wheels were frozen in place, so it was definitely time. After we did it, I noticed that there were a few chips on the area below vent door that were chipped, one of them about an 1/8th of an inch. I've attached a photo of the chips.

Should I leave them alone? Should I try and repair them, and if so, with what?

Many thanks for any feedback!

    You can use Hunter Green paint from Home Depot. Just get the sample size for like $2.

  • Thanks for the feedback. You don't think the chip itself has to be repaired? In other words, it's just cosmetic?

    BTW, I checked inside the BGE and there is no damage at the areas that are chipped on the outside.

    It should be just cosmetic. I had a couple chips in the same spot and touched it up as many on this board have done and haven't had any problems.

  • Thanks, Matty. As you suggest, I'll get some paint the next time I do a Home Depot run.

    It took me awhile, but I wanted to report back that I bought a spray can of Rustoleum Hunter Green paint. I couldn't find a sample size, but a full can was only $3.98. The color is perfect and it solved the problem.

    Thanks, MattyMc!

    Good job. Glad to know it was such a simple fix.
