Hi,
Made a bit of a cock up with a couple of mitred joints on the pelmet, what would you say is the best way to fill the gaps (less than a millimeter) should I use Colorfill, hard wax or soft wax ?
Also I've managed to chip the laminate upstand which is a bleached wood effect :(

thanks for any advice

Unfortunately not big-all, I used Mitrebond on the joint while the pelmet was upside down (looked good) and then used contact adhesive to fix the pelmets to the wall unit, the wall unit was upside down on the floor so I didn't notice it until I put the wall unit up ...

gloss will probably show wax to much if the wax is too matt
colorfill may work with the same shade but edging on a fraction darker
see iff you get a satisfactory match if not -----
i would be tempted to try and recut the joint by cutting though the joint if you have a bit spare slightly to the side and aim to remove say half the glue from the face
then when seperated another full rub to clean the face
i always screw into position to allow adjustment
