Default Builder inflicted spar damage

Hopefully damage overstates the severity of the issue! Looking for some advice as to how I should prep the ding made by an errant bucking bar.

Thanks in advance!

Default spar damage

I agree, buff out the sharp edges, although a call to Vans would be prudent as well.

Here in Canada our MDRA inspection service tells us to sand it out so your fingernail does not catch it. Hope it helps I can assure you that we all have done a little bit of sanding here and there.
