Default dr color chip results with pic's

Just tried out dr. color chip for the first time and I'm happy with the results. I wasn't expecting miracles and I know the good old touchup and sand method is better but this is a lot easier. I did it twice some of the rash isn't noticeable at all anymore. the bigger chips are another story though. Who knows maybe with a little practice and longer setup time I can get it even better. I would think a non metallic color would work better.

BTW, I only waited 2 minutes for the paint to dry the first time. Too damn impatient.

I have heard some good reviews about it as well and ordered a kit for my dad's fx-35 and will be trying it out this weekend.

Awesome, looks great! I have like 50+ tiny rock chips on my hood and I was recommended this product. Glad to see it came out so good!

that turned out to look really good

i actually got it and tried it but every time i removed the paint with the solution it always seemed to take all of the paint off and not just the smeared paint.

did i maybe not let it dry for long enough?

You shouldn't be using hardly any pressure with the solvent rag. Open palm just wipe from left to right lightly many many many times. Took me a good 5 minutes or so per section. Without pressure, the solvent rag is only going to pull off the highest areas of paint, which should be what's on the good paint, while passing gently over the chip and not pulling the paint out of it.

What he said. I think a longer set up time might be better but I only waited a couple minutes.

Are these bigger chips? If they are try a couple layers and wait a little longer. The larger chips I have repaired did not come out as good as the rash but they did turn out better than the old touch up method.

I also used this kit on my car, it had hundreds of rock chips : front of hood, around the front fenders, a TON right above the side skirts on all 4 doors and couple of others spread around the rest of the car.

It really does make a difference, you can still barely see it from close, definitely not perfect, but disappears from 5-10+ feet.

I did tend to use a lot of the paint remover solution, but I had tons of rock chips. Plenty of left over paint if I need to address more.
