Tell me about it. Driving me nuts also. Trying to find someone who can possibly fix that otherwise I will eventually replace it. Pisses me off so much.

Thanks. I wanted to try something different. I like the way it pops out also. Plastidipped it's just in case I didn't like it I could just peel it off.

You can try filling and touching up that area. BTW I can't tell from the pics, is there glossifier on the plastidip or is it matte?
